FAA orders more inspections after Southwest incident

FAA orders more inspections after Southwest incident

Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 took off from LaGuardia Airport at 10:27 a.m. and landed in Philadelphia about 11:23 a.m.

After a window imploded because of shrapnel caused by the engine fan's disintegration, the cabin became depressurized; 43-year-old Jennifer Riordan, a Wells Fargo VP, was partially sucked through a window during the horrific incident. It was when they were over Pennsylvania that one of the two engines of her Boeing 737-700 malfunctioned.

Needum, a Texas firefighter, said he heard commotion behind him and his wife nodded that it was OK to leave her and try to save Riordan.

Maloney told the Dallas Morning News she hopes her friend's heroic act will inspire other young people, especially women, to consider aviation careers.

Mackey said she and others are experiencing survivor guilt, especially because the airline allows passengers to pick their own seats. "She is being hailed as a national hero, and we are celebrating what God has done through her and at the same time praying for her as she grieves the loss of a passenger". "We would do a very methodical investigation", NTSB chairman Robert Sumwalt said.

Former First Lady Barbara Bush To Be Laid To Rest Saturday
Bush's pearls, after all, became synonymous with her own soft power in the political sphere. "I'm a woman", she added. The former first lady will lie in repose where the public can pay their respects on Friday from noon to midnight.

She is survived by two children and her husband, Michael Riordan, who was once the chief operating officer for the city of Albuquerque, CNN affiliate KOAT reported.

In air traffic control audio, Shults spoke calmly and slowly, describing the emergency unfolding more than 30,000 feet in the air - all the while trying to land a plane with engine failure.

"She's a formidable woman, as sharp as a tack", said Gary Shults, a dentist in San Antonio. I'm going to send her a Christmas card, I'm going to tell you that, with a gift certificate for getting me on the ground. "We've got injured passengers". "But part of it is missing. And we're still at five percent", she says. "They said there's a hole, and, uh, someone went out".

An individual familiar with the investigation said it is likely Riordan's neck broke from the force of the airplane's speed when her head was pulled outside. "I didn't know what state the plane or even the pilot was in, if we were in condition to land", he said.

How many unbelievable women doing awesome things will it take before we finally can say, "Wow, what an wonderful pilot!" "She comforted everyone. She's an unbelievable person".
