  • Alaska Airlines Plane Makes Emergency Landing at HON

President Trump will meet Tuesday with the Southwest Airlines crew hailed as heroes for landing their plane after an engine blowout damaged the fuselage and killed a passenger partially sucked out a window.

"Our hearts break for the family of the passenger who tragically lost her life, Jennifer Riordan". "We're very, very proud of them". "We send out prayers to Jennifer's husband and their two handsome young children". "She must have been a fantastic woman".

"The courage it took for her to control that situation and really save everyone on board is really just unbelievable", one passenger said.

Ms Riordan died of her injuries despite being pulled back into the cabin by passengers. The passenger, Lilia Chavez, says in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Philadelphia that she sat three seats behind the shattered window and witnessed "the horror" of what happened to Riordan.

Flight 1380 was headed from NY to Dallas last month when an engine on the Boeing 737 exploded at 30,000 feet.

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.

In addition to the airline, Safran and General Electric are named as defendants as joint venture partners in CFM International which manufactures the engines. They're still talking about it.

Trump, in a meeting in the Oval Office, praised the response of pilot Tammie Jo Shults, who steered the plane to safety on April 17 after an engine explosion blew out a window, killing passenger Jennifer Riordan. 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.
