Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 Disaster: 'Almost Everyone' Wore Their Oxygen Masks Incorrectly

Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 Disaster: 'Almost Everyone' Wore Their Oxygen Masks Incorrectly

U.S. aviation authorities investigating a deadly midair explosion of a Southwest Airlines jet engine say one of its fan blades had snapped off due to metal fatigue.

This new plan will require ultrasonic inspections of fan blades after a certain number of take-offs and landings.

"Engine failures like this should not occur", Robert Sumwalt, chairman of the NTSB, said Wednesday. Southwest told the FAA in October that airlines needed 18 months and that only certain fan blades should be inspected, not all 24 in engines.

Mr Sumwalt also said a casing on the engine is meant to contain any parts that come loose but, due to the speed, the metal was able to penetrate the shell.

The jet's CFM56-7B engines were made by CFM International, jointly owned by General Electric and Safran Aircraft Engines of France.

"We may be seeing a new phenomenon involving engines as they get old", said Bill Waldock, an expert on aircraft accident investigations with the Embry Aeronautical University.

It is clear from photographs that the entire forward cowling of the engine separated.

An emotional Andrew Needum told reporters Thursday that he was traveling with his wife, two young children and parents when they heard a loud pop Tuesday.

Jennifer Riordan's family said in a statement that the 43-year-old community leader died Tuesday on a flight heading from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Dallas that made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after its engine blew in midair and shrapnel hit the plane. After the plane window shattered next to her, Jennifer was almost ejected from the plane.

"Those people. I'm sorry that they'll probably have images in their head that they'll never forget", she said, "but Jennifer would be the first to say your job is to keep living, and live well".

Captain Tammie Jo Shults and First Officer Darren Ellisor of Flight 1380 issued a statement Wednesday night.

As for Tuesday's incident, "The NTSB and the FAA are going to be looking very closely at the sequence of events that led up to this accident", Gogila said.

One person was killed, and seven were hospitalized with minor injuries, authorities said. "A buddy, the guy helped, and we got her pulled in, and they tried to resuscitate her".

A NTSB inspection crew was also combing over the Boeing 737-700 for signs of what caused the engine to explode.

Baker Mayfield appears shirtless on cover of Sports Illustrated
But what about Lamar Jackson? The Cleveland Browns have been reportedly enamored with Mayfield throughout the whole draft process. Both would be considered bargains at these draft slots. "The great National Football League quarterbacks have answers".

That pilot has been hailed a hero for the way she handled that emergency situation.

"The listed cause of death seems consistent with what we've heard in media reports", department spokesman James Garrow said, though he could not confirm the nature of her death.

"Thank you. Thank you that she didn't go flying out the window and we wouldn't have her".

She's served in the US Navy for 10 years and flew fighter jets before leaving active service in 1993 after achieving the rank of lieutenant commander.

Rebecca Avitia, the executive director of the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque, said that losing Riordan casts a dark, heavy emptiness on the city. The jet could have been landing on a freeway for all he knew, he said. Video from the Southwest flight showed people grabbing their masks and putting them over their mouths, but not their noses.

"No, it's not on fire, but part of it is missing", Shults said, pausing briefly.

Threat of Wildfires High for Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas
National Weather Service meteorologist Doug Speheger says such conditions haven't been seen in at least a decade. Officials estimated the fire could be fully contained late Friday, a "target date", Nichols said.
