Scary but the plane landed safely and everybody is ok

 

The background at the end some girl saying "I'm not ever going on a plane, anymore".  Yeah, I do not blame ya.

It’s funny, I have to get liquored up to fly - but have no problem being in a 17 foot skiff sliding down ten footers to fish permit in the Marquesas.

Engine failure thankfully generally an early after take off situation in general. 
 

In addition, the 777 is and has always been ETOPS(330) certified so it can fly for (up tp) 5 1/2 hours on a single engine (tho less under circumstances like this flight with the additional drag from the hot mess that was the No. 2 engine).

FAA should know there’s no runway 26 Right at Denver. 

You would think. There is however runway 08/26; I am sure it was just a typo.

Denver's weird because there's a 26 and a 25. Kinda odd that they're off by 10 degrees. :shrug:

I can understand why they might say 26R.

Runways 25 and 26 are actually the same heading, but named differently.

I believe the master plan for the airport has adjacent parallel runways for both 25 and 26. Since you can’t have four paved runways with the same numerical designation they would need to go with 25 L/R and 26 L/R. The current naming is in anticipation of that.

Don't they (satanic elites and the Majestic 13 folks) keep alien technology underneath that airport meant to survive nuclear armageddon?

They appear to be but could be off by a couple degrees. I assume they would round to the nearest 10 degree increment. 

Your explanation also makes sense. Here's an example from DFW:
