Unbelievable Images From Nightmare Southwest Flight Shock The Web

Here’s a little insight into my life:  Until the time that my mother passed away when I was 12 years old, our family would never fly.  Anywhere.

The reason being that my mother had been a part of an horrific incident on a flight earlier in her life, in which the plane she was traveling on dropped several thousand feet in a matter of seconds.  The drop was so sudden that many passengers were moving about the cabin at the time, and were subsequently tossed about, thudding into whatever angular, uncomfortable bit of decor was in their path.  Several people were severely hurt, and, concerned for the plane’s integrity, the pilots made an emergency landing somewhere near New Orleans, and my mother never stepped foot on an airplane again.

Mind you, she was headed to Albany, NY by way of Atlanta when she had her harrowing experience, and was forced to rent a car and drive the 1,400 miles home.

I have no personal qualms about flying.  My mother’s experience didn’t translate to my own psyche in any real way, but stories like hers continue to occur.  One such nightmare erupted on a recent Southwest flight, with a number of images of the damage going viral.

First, there was the exploded engine:

 

Passengers aboard a Dallas-bound Southwest Airlines flight Tuesday heard an explosion before seeing oxygen masks drop from the ceiling and a woman sucked toward a broken window in the plane, a witness said.
“As the plane is going down, I am literally purchasing internet just so I can get some kind of communication to the outside world,” he said.
The plane had suffered damage to one of its engines, and according to passenger Kristopher Johnson, who was sitting near the front of Flight 1380, debris from the engine flew into the window, breaking it and injuring a woman sitting nearby.
