FAA orders emergency inspection of airline engines

Serious damages were caused to the plane as the engine failed and an emergency landing forced

One window cracked and partially pulled passenger Jennifer Riordan out.

Sullenberger said there were similarities between the two incidents.

"We value you as our customer and hope you will allow us another opportunity to restore your confidence in Southwest as the airline you can count on for your travel needs", Siwatu's letter said.

The company called for inspections of fan blades on long-service engines. They've also recovered the airplane's cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder, and are still tracking down debris from the engine.

The order passed about the investigation will be affecting about 680 engines globally including about 350 in the United States as reported by FAA.

Praised for "nerves of steel", the Southwest pilot who skillfully and calmly landed a Boeing 737 amid engine failure went to school in southern New Mexico.

"The airlines are dictating to the FAA what they think should happen versus the FAA saying 'No, you are going to do this right now, '" Gary Peterson, vice president of the Transport Workers Union International, told NBC News. It said that any fan blades that failed the inspection would have to be replaced. The cause of death was blunt impact trauma to her head, neck and torso, according to the Philadelphia medical examiner. Her husband has also confirmed she was at controls of the plane to the Associated Press. In the end, one woman was fatally injured and seven people had minor injuries.

This week's deadly Southwest Airlines incident marked the first passenger death in USA commercial aviation since 2009.

How did the drama unfold?

"It makes me pretty proud", Lopez said.

About 20 minutes after the twin-engine Boeing 737 took off, shrapnel pierced the passenger compartment causing the plane to lose pressure and rapidly descend. According to The New York Times, oxygen masks dropped down and the plane started descending rapidly.

Some industry observers say Shults will become a role model for women and prompt more to consider careers in aviation.

From his seat, Needum said he looked at his wife across the aisle - and she appeared to give him the OK to walk to the back of the plane, where "a commotion" was occurring.

"Like many of our alumni, Tammie Jo Shults exemplifies all that MNU is about", MNU Director of Alumni Kevin Garber said in a statement.

"Everybody is talking about Tammie Jo and how cool and calm she was in a crisis, and that's just Tammie Jo", said Rachel Russo, a friend from Shults' church in Boerne, Texas, about 30 miles (48 km) northwest of San Antonio.
