FAA orders engine inspections after deadly Southwest Airlines incident

The National Transportation Safety Board is onsite inspecting a Southwest airline plane after engine failure caused the plane to make an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport

The 43-year-old died in a hospital after the pilot made an emergency landing in Philadelphia.

The dead woman was identified as Jennifer Riordan, a Wells Fargo bank executive and mother of two from Albuquerque, New Mexico. The European Aviation Safety Agency announced in March that it is considering a similar rule based on the report from the September 2016 Southwest flight incident.

No fan blade or inlet material was found in the hole and the cabin was not penetrated.

(The cowl is the surrounding enclosure, analogous to an automobile's hood.) The current speculation is that metal fatigue from one of the numerous fan blades that rotate at incredibly high RPM was the culprit. He also noted "a fair amount of vibration" and said the airliner landed in Philadelphia at an above-average speed of 190 mph.

Dallas-bound Southwest Airlines flight 1380 made an emergency landing in Philadelphia on Tuesday, 20 minutes after leaving LaGuardia, because of an uncontained engine failure.

The order, called an air-worthiness directive, would require an ultrasonic inspection within the next six months of the fan blades on all CFM56-7B engines that have accrued a certain number of takeoffs.

The FAA recommends that children be placed in a government-approved child safety restraint system.

Earlier, Mr Sumwalt told a news conference that the incident began when one of the engine's 24 fan blades snapped off from its hub. "Although the bag does not inflate, oxygen is flowing to the mask", passengers are told, according to The Washington Post. Photos of passengers started circulating shortly after the accident, and it's pretty easy to see what's wrong with this picture. And in the case of Southwest, which only flies the 737, the investigators will also take a hard look at the entire fleet to see if there might be a more serious systemwide problem.

"She had two kids and a loving husband and a community around her that loved her. So, my heart is broken for them and I just pray comfort and they find healing", Needum said.

Parts of the engine cowling were found about 65nm (120km) from Philadelphia, but the NTSB has not recovered internal engine components. On the other hand, a reading of -100 would imply that the stock is oversold and possibly set for a rally.

Shrapnel from a Southwest Airlines engine shattered a window, resulting in the death of a woman who was partially sucked out of the plane.

. Bobby Laurie, now host of The Jet Set travel talk show, pleaded with people to "listen to your flight attendants!"

The recommendation for travelers is to check with the FAA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

Robert Clifford, a lawyer who is suing American Airlines over another engine explosion that caused a fire that destroyed the plane, said the FAA should have required the inspections - even if it meant grounding Boeing 737s.

"And even when people do comply with putting their phone on airplane mode, they're still staring at it with headphones in", she said.

William Waldock, a safety expert at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, predicted the FAA's decision. Analysts are projecting the stock to trade at $72.37 within the next 12-18 months. It was a story of a pilot with seeming nerves of steel, who brought the plane down safely for the other 143 passengers on board.

Passengers praised one of the pilots, Tammie Jo Shults, for her cool-headed handling of the emergency.
