Emergency Landing Engine Out - Frontier Airlines

Phoenix, AZ - 2 April 2011

On Friday, a Southwest Airlines plane made an emergency but uneventful landing in Yuma after its roof ripped open in mid-flight. The plane was enroute from Phoenix to Sacramento when it happened.

All 118 passengers and 5 crewmembers on board were safe. Southwest said all passengers on Flight 812 will receive a full refund and two complimentary roundtrip passes for future flights.

Southwest will ground 79 of its Boeing 737 planes for inspection and expects to cancel about 300 flights nationwide. Teams from the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the hole.
