Woman sucked out of plane: Hundreds of emergency jet engine inspections ordered

Woman sucked out of plane: Hundreds of emergency jet engine inspections ordered Woman sucked out of plane: Hundreds of emergency jet engine inspections ordered

Many passengers kept trying to pull the woman back into the plane for a long time, until two men were able to get the woman back in her seat, they said.

A Southwest Airlines plane flying from NY 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.

Philadelphia's medical examiner said on Wednesday that Ms Riordan had died of blunt impact trauma to her head, neck and torso. One person was killed and 7 others injured. A ring created to contain engine components and prevent them from penetrating vulnerable parts of the plane in the event of failure was apparently ineffective.

A fan blade broke off in flight Tuesday on the CFM56-7B engine, triggering a chain of events that shattered a window on 737.

Praises continues to pour in for Tammie Jo Shults, the Southwest Airlines pilot who impresses so many with the way she brought down a troubled jet for an emergency landing in Philadelphia this week.

At issue are the engine fan blades on Boeing 737s. The containment ring had likewise failed to protect the plane from shrapnel caused by the explosion. It is the product of a 40-year-old joint venture between GE Aviation and France's Safran Aircraft Engines called CFM International.

United Continental Holdings (UAL.N) said that it had begun inspections earlier after a recommendation from CFM. Both would later become pilots for Southwest Airlines.

World's oldest person dies in Japan aged 117
The world's oldest person, a 117-year-old Japanese woman, has died, according to a report in the South China Morning Post. A 117-year-old Japanese woman, thought to be the world's oldest person, has died, a local official told AFP on Sunday.

Though the comment period ended in October 2017, no decision has yet been made.

"Like many of our alumni, Tammie Jo Shults exemplifies all that MNU is about", Kevin Garber, MNU director of alumni, said in a statement.

The inspections will focus on the fan blades, the FAA said. American Airlines (AAL.O) said it does not have any CFM56-7B engines with 30,000 cycles and would not be impacted by the 20-day order. Southwest pledged Tuesday to inspect the remainder of its fleet within 30 days.

The European order states that after the first inspection, airlines must repeat the process every 3,000 cycles, which typically represents about two years in service.

Southwest CEO Gary Kelly said the family of the victim was the airline's primary concern.

The crew reported damage to one of the aircraft's engines as well as the fuselage and a window, the Federal Aviation Administration said. However, a similar incident took place in 2016 when debris from a plane created a 16-inch hole on another plane operated by Southwest Airlines. All we could do was stay calm, because if we didn't then there would be even more panic in the plane'.

Southwest announced just hours after the incident that it will conduct additional inspections of its CFM56-7B engines.
