Passenger sues Southwest in relation to engine explosion

| 02 May, 2018, 02:00

President Donald Trump welcomed hero pilot Tammie Jo Shults and other crew members and passengers from Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 to the Oval Office Tuesday, recognizing the work of those in the cabin and the cockpit following catastrophic engine failure.

Trump later addressed the death of Jennifer Riordan, a New Mexico bank executive who was killed after being almost sucked out the flight heading to Dallas from NY on April 17.

A statement by Captain Shults and First Officer Darren Ellisor of Flight 1380 said, "Our hearts are heavy". "We're very, very proud of them".

The pilot who successfully landed a Southwest plane after it suffered catastrophic engine trouble, has been given a hero's welcome at the White House.

The president offered his prayers and condolences to Riordan's husband and children, saying that from what he has heard, "she must've been a fantastic woman".


Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 was headed from NY to Dallas with 149 people on board in April when it was forced to land in Philadelphia after an engine on the Boeing 737 exploded at 30,000 feet (9,144 metres).

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating. She died later from her injuries.

"Everybody's talking about it". He also wanted to meet passengers who assisted other travelers.

Shults managed to safely land the plane, which had 149 people on board, in Philadelphia.

"The actions of the crew and passengers of Southwest Flight 1380 shows the great character of our nation", Trump said. At 30,000 feet, passengers heard a bang and felt a bump as a fan blade broke off in the engine, causing it to explode.
