FAA orders inspections of more jet engines — The Latest

The manufacturer's recommendation for more inspections followed an engine explosion on a 2016 Southwest flight.

Write to us in the Comments Section or on our Facebook page. That incident prompted the FAA to propose last year that similar fan blades undergo ultrasonic inspections and be replaced if they failed. "The most dangerous part of flying, honestly, is driving to the airport". For example, at that altitude, they can easily deduce it was not a bird strike. If you are traveling with a child or someone who requires assistance, secure your mask on first, and then assist the other person.

Before your flight anxiety kicks in, know that fatal accidents are "extremely rare", says Cox.

The two pilots of a Southwest Airlines plane that made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after their engine blew apart, leading to the death of a woman, say their "hearts are heavy". Not all airlines operating 737s are affected. One of the cracks was consistent with metal fatigue, he said.

Southwest released a statement acknowledging the emergency landing, confirming that the passengers had walked off the plane onto the tarmac after the landing around 11:20 a.m. earlier today.

"It's a big deal because the mask is supposed to cover your nose as well as your mouth because through a breathing cycle you inhale, you exhale", said Dr. Barez.

Beyond the check and the voucher, Southwest offered the passengers assistance with other "necessities", including help being reunited with luggage that was on the flight or other expenses. "You can expect a [service bulletin] with immediate FAA endorsement through an AD". LUV's free cash flow ("FCF") per share for the trailing twelve months was +0.05.

"On behalf of the entire Southwest Airlines Family, please accept our sincere apologies for the circumstances surrounding Flight 1380 on Tuesday morning April 17th".

The requirement from the agency comes after the engine maker, CFM International, issued a service bulletin recommending that more engines be inspected.

"Southwest 1380, we're single engine", Capt. Tammie Jo Shults, a former fighter pilot with the U.S. Navy, said. He is doubtful that what happened on Tuesday is evidence of a design flaw. As of Dec. 31, 2017, the carrier reported operating 693 737-700/800s.

In the wake of Tuesday's incident, the FAA is now taking action. "Last year alone, U.S. airlines flew 4.3 billion passengers without a single fatality".

Read the full report from Reuters. You said there was a hole and somebody went out? The NTSB investigation could take 12 to 15 months to complete, Sumwalt said.

But the AD might not have applied to the Southwest aircraft anyway. The NTSB said a fan blade separated from the engine disk in a case of metal fatigue. Passengers on the Boeing 737-700 said they heard a loud boom. "What's raising eyebrows here is the fact that there have been two failures". "Further back... you see the containment ring". She died later from her injuries.

"Everybody has been saying it's an uncontained engine failure".

Experts studying such failures believe the forward trajectory results from pressure behind the blades, he adds. We have been working aggressively to complete inspections sooner than recommended. And incidents like bird strikes, even those years ago, might theoretically degrade blade strength. Frightened passengers on board the Dallas-bound flight braced for impact as oxygen masks muffled their screams.

The woman, Jennifer Riordan of Albuquerque, was seated in Row 14, the same row as the missing window, federal investigators said Wednesday.

"I'm very concerned about this particular event", National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Robert Sumwalt said at a news conference on Wednesday.
