The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating an incident in which an engine cover fell off a Southwest Airlines-flown Boeing 737-800 jet during takeoff from Denver on Sunday.

The FAA said Flight 3695, which was headed for Houston, returned safely to Denver International Airport around 8:15 a.m. after its crew reported that an engine cover fell off during takeoff and struck a wing flap.

The aircraft was towed to the gate upon landing, the FAA said.

Southwest said maintenance teams were reviewing the aircraft and apologized for the delay. The passengers were moved to another aircraft.

A Boeing spokesperson referred the request to Southwest for information about the jet and the airline’s fleet operations.
