Montana native tried to save passenger sucked out of Southwest flight

- A firefighter who was on board the Southwest flight broke down describing the moment a piece of the engine broke off.

News 9 sat down with an OU Social Justice Professor who was two seats away from the woman who died on the tragic Southwest Airlines flight Tuesday. Fellow passengers were able to pull her back inside but she died of her injuries later on Tuesday.

The plane, a Boeing 737 bound from NY to Dallas with 149 people aboard, made an emergency landing in Philadelphia.

Federal investigators said a blade that broke off in mid-flight was showing signs of metal fatigue - microscopic cracks that can splinter open under the kind of stress placed on jetliners and their engines.

On Tuesday, the engine on a Southwest flight exploded, hitting the plane with debris. The oldest blades would be inspected within six months, while many others would face an 18-month deadline.

The objections from Southwest and other airlines stem partly from the fact that carriers, while highly regulated, are not required to track each individual fan blade within an engine.

CFM suggested a shorter examination period than some airlines wanted, of no more than 12 months. Those comments are analyzed before a final rule is issued.

The FAA, which has issued more than 100 airworthiness directives just since the beginning of this year, has said that the time it takes to finalize directives depends on the complexity of the issue and the agency's risk assessment based on the likelihood of occurrence and the severity of the outcome.

The FAA has ordered all airlines to inspect hundreds of jet engines similar to the ones that exploded after a titanium fan blade in the engine snapped off. In June, the company issued a so-called alert service bulletin, recommending ultrasound inspections of the components involved in the 2016 engine failure.

Court Blocks Indiana Law Banning Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome
John Kasich in 2016, prohibited federal taxpayer money from going to businesses that perform abortions in the state of Ohio. Wolfson argued that under the unconstitutional-conditions doctrine, "it doesn't matter whether you surrender or not".

The NTSB found the damage included a 12 centimetres by 40 centimetres hole that was found in the left fuselage just above the left wing, close to passenger windows.

It appeared from a visual inspection that metal fatigue was the cause, Sumwalt said. Critics said the airlines were slow to act.

"The public should be anxious (because) a manufacturer sent out a warning, and Southwest and others didn't do it", said Mary Schiavo, a former inspector general of the Transportation Department, FAA's parent agency. "I can't image what they are going through", Needum says.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced the order late Wednesday. He says the first few minutes when the crew goes over the safety information is the most important part of any flight for a passenger.

The FAA estimated the industry's labor costs to comply would be just $37,400, but that doesn't include the cost of new blades. It added, though, that blades are swapped in and out of engines and aren't tracked.

Tuesday's emergency broke a string of eight straight years without a fatal accident involving a U.S. airliner.

"Engine failures like this should not occur", said NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt. Not all airlines operating 737s are affected.

Mr Bourman, who flies three or four times a year, acknowledged that over time, he began tuning out the safety instructions, but that would not be the case going forward.

It is unclear whether the FAA's original directive would have forced Southwest to quickly inspect the engine that blew up.
