Engine maker seeking answers after Southwest explosion that killed 1

21 April, 2018, 05:53 | Author: Regina Silva
  • A Southwest Airlines plane flying from New York to Dallas had to make an emergency landing Tuesday morning in Philadelphia after one of its engines was damaged according to the Federal Aviation Administration

It added, though, that blades are swapped in and out of engines and aren't tracked.

A National Transportation Safety Board crew did a preliminary scan of the plane and found signs of "metal fatigue", which are tiny cracks that can eventually can cause a catastrophe.

Mr Sumwalt said he could not yet say if the incident, the first deadly airline accident in the United States since 2009, pointed to a fleet-wide issue in the Boeing 737-700. "What we want to find out is why was this not detected ahead of time". The flight from New York City to Dallas was diverted to Philadelphia International Airport. She was given CPR while the pilot was forced to make an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport.

Passengers on the flight described how, after the explosion sent shrapnel into one of the plane's windows, Riordan was pulled halfway out of aircraft.

Two passengers managed to pull Riordan back inside when she was partially sucked out of the shattered window, according to witnesses.

Fellow passengers desperately tried to save the 43-year-old married mother of two, but the New Mexico bank executive died from blunt force trauma to her hear, neck and torso. Sumwalt said the plane touched down at about 190 miles per hour, while a jet of that size would typically land at around 155 miles per hour.

But former flight attendant and US TV show host, Bobby Laurie, reposted the photo to Twitter with a reminder to cover your nose and mouth with the oxygen mask during an emergency.

"The order comes after a Southwest Airlines flight on Tuesday made an emergency landing in Philadelphia, due to an apparent engine failure, with one passenger killed after being almost sucked out of the plane", National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Robert Sumwalt told reporters at a briefing Wednesday, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Southwest workers, Clifford said, can not sue their employer.

The people who were sending "videos to their families, saying, 'These are my last words to you, ' which is something that did occur in this incident, that kind of person will live with that for the rest of their life", he said.

No injuries resulted from the 2016 incident.

But regulators face questions over the speed of their response to the Southwest jet's 2016 engine blowout. "Although the number of fan blades requiring the inspection remains the same, the number of engines involved with this inspection has significantly increased", it said.

No fan blade or inlet material was found in the hole and the cabin was not penetrated. The FAA proposed up to 18 months, backed by Southwest and most carriers.

A source familiar with the process, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the FAA expects to issue the finalized airworthiness directive soon.

It's unclear why the left engine of the flight malfunctioned when the plane was over 32,000 feet.

"A single blade failing should be contained within the engine without having pieces go radially outward", Anderson says. "The maintenance burden and cost for operators to inspect all effective fan blades is much more significant than proposed", it said. But the fact that this was the only passenger to have ever died on Southwest flights since the pioneering low-priced carrier was founded in 1967 and when the airline carries over 120 million passengers a year, shows that what occurred is the rare exception.
