Jennifer Riordan Death Caused by Blunt Force Trauma

While Sumwalt has said that it is too early to make a direct comparison, the incident was reminiscent of the uncontained engine failure on a Southwest 737-700 on August 27, 2016, that forced pilots to divert to Pensacola International Airport, Florida, during a flight from New Orleans to Orlando.

The Federal Aviation Administration will soon begin ordering USA airlines to inspect engine fan blades that have reached a certain number of takeoffs and landings.

A retired registered school nurse says she performed CPR on the woman who passengers say was partially sucked out of the window of a Southwest Airlines plane that had been hit by engine debris.

The GE-Safran partnership that built the engine said it was sending about 40 technicians to help with Southwest's inspections. It said that any fan blades that failed the inspection would have to be replaced.

The Federal Aviation Administration's announcement late Wednesday comes almost a year after the engine's manufacturer recommended the additional inspections, and a month after European regulators ordered their airlines to do the work.

In response, the European Aviation Safety Authority (EASA) issued a directive requiring operators of the planes to inspect specific fan blades on the CFM56-7, an engine used in some Boeing 737-700 planes, by the end of 2019.

"Engine failures like this should not occur", Robert Sumwalt, chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, said on Wednesday.

The initial findings from investigators show that Tuesday's emergency was eerily similar to an engine failure on another Southwest plane in 2016. That was when he saw a window blown open about two rows ahead of him on the other side of the plane. No plastic material from the window was found inside the plane. She walked down the aisle and talked to passengers to make sure they were OK after the plane touched down.

To avoid it from happening, a passenger needs a 100 percent oxygen flow, provided, of course, that they wear the oxygen mask correctly and not like the people depicted in Martinez's photo.

Investigators are now conducting an investigation into what caused the engine to erupt mid-flight.

Mueller Probing Ukrainian Billionaire's Payment To Trump Charity
Cohen said the company signed a nonbinding letter of intent in October 2015 with Moscow-based I.C. There have been few indicators that Mueller was excited by investigating the fee, although.

It is unclear whether that would have forced Southwest to quickly inspect the engine that blew up. CEO Gary Kelly said it had logged only 10,000 cycles since being overhauled.

Critics accuse the FAA of inaction in the face of a threat to safety.

"Had a window go out and a lady go out the window, and we couldn't pull in", said passenger Tim McGinty.

Sumwalt said a first look showed there was evidence of metal fatigue where the blade attached to a hub.

Ms Riordan was the first passenger to die in an accident on a USA commercial airliner since 2009. It broke off during that Southwest flight from NY to Dallas sending shrapnel forward and causing an explosion. United Airlines said Wednesday it has begun inspecting some of its planes.

"The affected engine count for the fleet in costs of compliance. appears to be vastly understated", it said.

The Dallas-based carrier was not the only operator to ask for more time or suggest other changes as first the engine maker, CFM International, and then the FAA and its European counterpart proposed checks a year ago for potentially flawed fan blades.

So-called D checks are done roughly every six years for older planes, less frequently for newer ones.

That's when the firefighter from Celina, Texas, heard a commotion in the back of the plane. Engines are typically removed for work during a D check.
