He was one of the passengers who said they received the letter. Other passengers attempted to hold her down and also plug the window.

Linda Maloney, a long-time friend who flew with Shults in the Navy in the 1980s, said that the hero pilot is a God-fearing person whose strong faith guided the safe landing.

"We appreciate the outpouring of support from the community, it truly touches our hearts", the Riordan family wrote in a statement.

She is married to a fellow pilot and a mother of two children.

"Everybody is talking about Tammie Jo and how cool and calm she was in a crisis, and that's just Tammie Jo", Rachel Russo, who attends church with Shults said.

"Southwest 1380, we're single engine", said Shults, a former fighter pilot with the U.S. Navy.

The group initially stopped short of blaming Israel , saying only that he had been "assassinated by the hand of treachery". Israel has been accused of targeting Palestinians in overseas operations but rarely publicly acknowledges them.

She had no way of knowing that she was sitting in the most risky row of that plane. In 1993, after Shults left active duty, she transitioned to the Naval Reserve. "We have part of the aircraft missing, so we're going to need to slow down a bit".

The Boeing 737 plane managed to make an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport at 11.30am local time (4.30pm Irish time). "We've got injured passengers". "And is your airplane physically on fire?"

Shults and Ellisor said they won't be partaking in any interviews, and "ask that the public and the media respect our focus". "They said there's a hole, and, uh, someone went out".

The controller responded: "Um, I'm sorry".

"Obviously it was frustrating", said Ms Maloney, who became among the first women to join a combat military flying squadron and was deployed to the Arabian Gulf.

Jennifer Riordan was identified as the woman killed on the Southwest Airlines flight. The fan blade spins at several thousand revolutions per minute, so when it was "liberated", Sumwalt said, it basically broke into shrapnel.

Marty Martinez, one of the passengers on Flight 1380 told news reporters that there was blood everywhere. Those items got sucked out of the plane, too, he said. We were all just looking around. "She comforted everyone. She's an wonderful person".

When it was all over, the pilot came out of the cabin and hugged everyone, telling them, "You all did a great job".

Sullenberger praised Schults for how she handled the emergency.

Passenger Alfred Tumlinson told WPVI: "She has nerves of steel". They were still tracking down debris from the engine. Seven others were treated for minor injuries.

Because the 10:30 a.m. flight to Dallas was scheduled to be a four-hour haul, the University of Oklahoma associate professor of women's and gender studies chose mobility over comfort.
