U.S. regulator orders mass inspections of jet engines

U.S. regulator orders mass inspections of jet engines

Emergency personnel monitor the damaged engine of Southwest Airlines Flight 1380, which diverted to the Philadelphia International Airport this morning after the airline crew reported damage to one of the aircraft's engines, on a runway in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania U.S. April 17, 2018. NTSB chairman Robert Sumwalt said the crack was not detectable from the outside. We were all just looking around. A woman was sucked toward the hole where the window once had been as passengers struggled to pull her back in.

"So I had clicked my seat belt back on and I was going to get something out of my bag".

"I know he didn't even think twice about rendering aid to others after securing his family's safety", said Teena Marks.

"I was thrilled for a couple reasons", she says. "But I am. I feel really very fortunate for that", he told CNN affiliate WPVI.

"No, it's not on fire, but part of it is missing". Two months later, she buzzed her hair made her way to Pensacola, Florida, for flight training.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators on the scene were expected to wrap up their work in Philadelphia on Saturday, the agency said on Friday.

Sean Hannity Is Also A Client Of Trump's Lawyer Michael Cohen
This is now officially an all-hands-on-deck effort to totally malign and, if possible, impeach the president of the United States. Later, he tweeted again to make it very clear Cohen never represented him in "any matter between me and a third-party".

The company has declined to answer questions about the status of those inspections and whether the engine that failed had previously been inspected or whether the inspections have turned up any evidence of defects or metal fatigue.

Another of Southwest's 737-700s suffered a similar uncontained engine failure in 2016 on a flight to Orlando. The inspection requirement applies to CFM56-7B engines.

Ms Mackey criticised some media outlets for oversimplifying the rescue efforts, when, she said, amid the chaos, the situation was far more complex. About 20 minutes into the flight, at about 32,500 feet, a fan blade broke off the engine and shrapnel shattered a window.

As the investigation continues, the Federal Avation Administration says it will issue a directive ordering inspections of the same engines once they've made a certain number of take-offs and landings.

"After first inspection, operators are recommended to repeat the inspection every 3,000 cycles, which typically represents about two years in airline service", CFM added. The FAA issued an airworthiness directive requiring ultrasonic inspections after that event.
