Southwest pilot praised for calmly landing plane after engine exploded

The leading edge of the left wing was damaged by shrapnel from the engine explosion.

Except for it being his birthday, Tuesday was "a quite normal day" for Jim Demetros of Stamford - until he heard a tremendous boom on the left side of the airborne Boeing 737 flying from NY to Dallas.

Passengers described scenes of panic as a piece of shrapnel from the engine shattered a plane window, nearly sucking Riordan out.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the plane landed after the crew reported damage to one of the engines, along with the fuselage and at least one window.

Southwest Airlines and Shults declined to be interviewed by NBC News on Wednesday. Sumwalt said the plane touched down at about 190 miles per hour, while a jet of that size would typically land at around 155 miles per hour. The woman later died of blunt force trauma to her head, neck and torso.

"Then we shook", Madison said the next day, safely home in NY after deciding to skip the Texas trip. "We've got injured passengers".

She eventually became an instructor pilot for the F/A-18 Hornet and the EA-6B Prowler.

But despite her accomplishments, she came up against the limits placed on women in the military.

As the plane descended steeply but steadily toward Philadelphia, the cabin was noisy from the open window, but the passengers were mostly quiet, maybe because they had their masks on, said passenger Amanda Bourman, of NY.

Throughout the emergency, Shults' communications remained clear and direct as she diverted the plane to Philadelphia, worked out an approach plan with ATC and made sure emergency vehicles and medical transport were standing by.

She also posted an image of the ruined engine as the plane sat on the tarmac. He says he helped the injured woman who later died.

The failure set off a catastrophic chain of events that killed a woman and broke a string of eight straight years without a fatal accident involving a US airliner.

Several pieces of the plane have been found on the ground in Berks County, as a part of the cowling - the outer covering of the engine - has been recovered from a field in Bernville.

State police spokesman Trooper David Beohm says anyone who believes they have found debris should call the Federal Bureau of Investigation office in Allentown.

Mrs Riordan was well known in New Mexico, where she built a career over more than two decades in community relations and communications after graduating from the University of New Mexico.

Spokesman James Garrow of the Philadelphia Department of Public Health said that Jennifer Riordan's death was ruled accidental.

"A guy helped, we got her pulled in".

Killed in the accident was 43-year-old bank executive Jennifer Riordan of New Mexico, who was partially sucked through the window before passengers were able to pull her back inside.

A Southwest Airlines plane traveling to Phoenix had to make an emergency landing in Tennessee on Wednesday morning.

Peggy Phillips spoke to WFAA-TV upon her arrival in Dallas Tuesday night.

She heard a lot of commotion a few rows behind her, noise and a whoosh of air and calls for someone who knew CPR.

The plane dropped 10,000 feet.

William Waldock, a safety expert at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, said he expects that this week's incident will push the FAA to require more detailed inspections of fan blades, but the details and pace will depend on whether investigators find fatigue in other fan blades on the broken engine.
