FAA orders emergency engine inspections as airlines move quickly to comply

It was unclear why the left engine of the flight malfunctioned when the plane was over 32,000 feet. "That's what she sounds like", Thompson told Baptist Press.

"We all feel we were simply doing our jobs", she said in conjunction with the flight's First Officer, Darren Ellisor in a joint statement on the official Southwest Airlines Twitter account.

She has been facing down those unjust, sexist stereotypes her entire adult life.

So even though she had a lot going on, she wanted to help Catholic schools through the foundation and by sending her children to Catholic school, he said.

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

What do you think will happen now, for the pilot and others who survived the flight, for the family of Jennifer Riordan, who was killed, and for Southwest Airlines? Why?

That order will affect about 680 engines globally, including about 350 in the United States, the FAA said.

The requirement from the agency comes after the engine maker, CFM International, issued a service bulletin recommending that more engines be inspected. Federal safety investigators have said the naked eye can not detect the cracks and signs of metal fatigue that doomed the engine on Southwest Flight 1380.

Following the fatal engine failure on a 737 Tuesday, the Federal Aviation Administration is poised to issue an emergency airworthiness directive calling for stepped up inspections of the CFM56-7B engine manufactured by CFM International.

The inspections ordered are a sharp step-up from actions by both the European and USA regulators after a Southwest flight in August 2016 made a safe emergency landing in Pensacola, Florida, after a fan blade separated from the same type of engine and debris ripped a hole above the left wing.
