A Southwest Airlines flight returned to Denver International Airport Sunday morning after a Boeing engine cowl fell off the plane and hit the wing flap during takeoff, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The Boeing 737-800 plane was en route to William P. Hobby Airport in Houston. Southwest said customers on the flight were transferred to a different plane and were scheduled to arrive at their destination three hours late.
