Southwest Airlines accident: Authorities order mass engine inspections

Recommended Posts


US and European aviation authorities have ordered emergency inspections of jet engines similar to the one involved in a fatal accident earlier this week.

A female passenger died after she was nearly sucked from the cabin of a Southwest Airlines flight en route from New York to Dallas on Tuesday.

Investigators say there was a fault with the engine's fan blades.

Almost 700 Boeing 737 engines will need to be inspected worldwide over the next 20 days


Reported metal fatigue in the fan(edited) blade. Very serious. Any experts around?

The casing of the engine is designed to withstand the forces of a "blade out".  had she been in any other seat she would have survived
