Passengers grabbed woman almost sucked from plane's window

A Southwest Airlines jet sits on the runway at Philadelphia International Airport after it was forced to land with an engine failure in Philadelphia Pennsylvania on 17 April 2018 Passengers grabbed woman almost sucked from plane's window

Erin Muffoletto said Riordan was a fellow Chi Omega sorority sister whom she contacted during the economic crisis in 2008 as Muffoletto struggled to find steady employment. A woman was killed. And what was most dire was a female passenger being sucked into the hole where the window had been.

Mum-of-two Jennifer Riordan was partially pulled through the window after an engine explosion caused shrapnel to smash the window of the plane. 7 other passengers sustained minor injuries.

The official cause of death for 43-year-old Jennifer Riordan, a Wells Fargo executive from Albuquerque, New Mexico, was recorded as "blunt trauma impact".

That, in turn, is making it harder for investigators to be certain whether the engine that exploded on a Boeing 737 on Tuesday was part of a group being targeted for inspection, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).

Pressure for the FAA to act grew after an engine on a Southwest plane blew apart on Tuesday, showering the aircraft with debris and shattering a window. Then what sounded like an explosion suddenly jolted the plane, passenger Marty Martinez said. "That lady, I applaud her", said Alfred Tumlinson, of Corpus Christi, Texas.

"Flight attendants rushed up".

"The plane rattled and shook and people were screaming, crying", said passenger Julian Lujan, 22, who was returning to Texas from his first trip to NY.

Social media watchers said Martinez's actions might be morally offensive to some but did not appear to violate Facebook's "community standards", which include bans on certain graphic or violent content, or that which is deemed disrespectful.

The plane descended precipitously, passenger Kristopher Johnson said, but the pilot "regained control" and informed passengers the flight was headed to Philadelphia.

The engine had 40,000 cycles on it, a quarter of those since it was overhauled, he said. "By all reports, I thought the crew acted magnificently", said Kelly.

"The crew did a great job", he said.

It was a rough landing, he said, and things were so chaotic he wasn't sure if the plane was going to crash.

"I didn't know if we were going to be running into a building. I knew I had to try to save that woman", said Phillips.

For a few seconds, the aircraft rolled to an angle of 41 degrees before levelling out and starting an emergency descent, federal investigators said on Wednesday. "It was just all incredibly traumatic, and finally when we. came to a halt, of course, the entire crowd was (in) tears and people crying and we were just thankful to be alive".

"Nobody got injured, but it was hauntingly parallel to what happened yesterday", CNN aviation analyst Miles O'Brien said.

Dr Wright explained via email that detecting metal fatigue and similar anomalies have been a routine maintenance activity for many years, specifically for routine engine inspections.

But images taken at several locations on the plane's flight path show the trail of wreckage left in the wake of the rapidly disintegrating aircraft.

The flight, carrying 149 passengers on a domestic U.S. flight, made an emergency landing, but videos and images taken on board have caused alarm because many passengers appear to be using their emergency breathing masks incorrectly.

"When the parts are off the aircraft and in the fix station a more thorough level of investigation can be performed that would be impractical whilst the engine is on the aircraft wing".

While Sumwalt has said that it is too early to make a direct comparison, the incident was reminiscent of the uncontained engine failure on a Southwest 737-700 on August 27, 2016, that forced pilots to divert to Pensacola International Airport, Florida, during a flight from New Orleans to Orlando.

The US Federal Aviation Administration said last night it would order the inspection of some 220 jet engines.
