Southwest flight makes emergency landing. One dead

https://www.google.com/amp/6abc.com/...ified/3356147/

I guess some shrapnel damaged the plane. It broke the fuselage and a window to the plane. The engine blew and landed the plane in Philadelphia. One woman died and 7 injured. It sounded like she went out the window.

Thought this was a funny quote from the article:
Matt Tranchin was on his flight home from New York to his 8-month pregnant wife in Dallas when he saw an explosion ahead of him.

"Right around the time there was a huge explosion and glass shattering three rows ahead of me, that was about the moment that I realized this was not going to be a normal flight," Tranchin said.
...

Ya think?

Pretty incredible job on the pilots' part in landing the plane with an engine out.

shrapnel at 32000 feet?

Tragic, lady lost her life. Looks like she did a lot in her community too.

I think the shrapnel was from a blade or something on the plane

I for the life of me cant find that original article. In that article it claimed a woman was sucked out. Guess they pulled her back in

A fan blade broke off from the engine which likely broke a window on the plane. The woman was not sucked out, maybe pressed up against the window. However the plane was traveling at 500mph at 30,000 feet, which would likely rip skin off the body and cause a lot of bleeding which is how she died.

This is the first fatality due to a GE engine failure since 1989, the first fatality on a US airline since 2009, and the first fatality ever for Southwest which has been in business since 1967. When you consider there are about 10,000 planes in the air at any given time that's pretty astonishing. Which is why I think it's ridiculous that there are still people who afraid of flying.

Sounds like the pilot did a hell of a job getting them to the ground safely.

GE engine / made under license in France.

GE does not make most of the fan blades in it's engines, those are subcontracted out.
TRW makes a lot of the blades used in GE jet engines, TRW also makes blades for Pratt & Whitney.

Read an account this morning that said she was out of the plane to her waist, and the passengers pulled her back in.

Kudos to the pilot...listened to her ATC comm and she was straight ice.

Sounds like quite a few passengers kept their cool and did some impressive things as well.

I saw where she was former Navy pilot. Not sure what she flew, etc. But she seemed to be on top of her game.

Also saw where they gave CPR are to the victim on the plane. I wonder if she was dead before they pulled her back in.

At 32,000 feet and 500 mph one would think so

The lady pilot flew the F-18 Hornet, so you can bet she's developed some serious skills over the years, not the least of which is thinking quickly and calmly under pressure while landing a supersonic jet on a rolling aircraft carrier at night.

I was curious about the passenger who died, and how one might survive such an experience. Guessing her hips kept her from going out further, but that would be bad enough. I was on a plane weekend before last, looking at the window, and wondering how much of my head would clear the frame, if that. When I see the "Goldfinger" scene where the villain gets his fat frame sucked thru that tiny Learjet window, I just roll my eyes.

I recalled this incident where a co-pilot got pulled halfway out the front window at 17,000 feet and 345 mph, stayed there for 20 minutes until they landed - and lived.

For many it's not the flying that bothers them, but the fear of sudden stopping. I agree though, it's a very safe form of transportation.

Havenít heard. That said, assuming the story about her being partially out the window is correct, she either wasnít wearing it, or had it at max looseness.

At 32k feet, the seat belt sign is likely off.

I agree. Listened as well. That pilot was awesome. I believe she even mentioned being told that someone had flown out the window.

That left wing took one some serious damage and she dropped to a lower altitude and landed like she had done it 100 times. Kudos.

I agree. I fly every week for my job to multiple places. Most people's fear stems from having zero control over their life and having no way out at 32,000ft. Those same people neglect to realize how little control they have in otherwise routine portions of their life.

Damn that's insane. You wouldn't think that's physically possible for her to not be completely sucked out

Those who have a fear of flying generally aren’t fearful because they are ignorant, they generally know the statistics of air travel safety, it’s just an irrational fear they can’t control.

Pretty much. I don't have a phobia of flying, but I can't say that I am comfortable either.

This whole flight debate thing reminds me of the gun debate thing. Both sides have legitimate concerns.

This is how most issues are, IMO. The truth usually lies somewhere in the middle. The problem is all of the azzhats who think everything wrong with society is all liberals fault, or all the conservatives fault.
