Catastrophic Engine Failure On Southwest 737 Kills Passenger

Even today, flying is dangerous, but the pilots and crew of Southwest 1380 earned their pay.

A Southwest Airlines flight from New York's LaGuardia airport to Dallas suffered a catastrophic engine failure yesterday…

Southwest 1380 was a Boeing 737-700 twin-engine airliner operated by the Dallas-based, low fare airline. The flight is typically scheduled to take just under four hours. The aircraft left the gate at LaGuardia at 10:27 a.m., three minutes early, and took off 16 minutes later.
