"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
See… This is why I don’t like to fly
Southwest Airlines cancelled over 300 flights for a 2nd day in a row as it continued to inspect almost 80 planes they’ve grounded for damage similar to that of the 737 that had to make an emergency landing in Yuma, Arizona yesterday. Mechanics discovered a tear along the “lap joint” which showed extensive cracking that was undiscovered in previous maintenance checks. This definitely doesn’t sound good for Southwest’s future business. In fact, I bet a lot of people are going to sell short their stock or throw money into some put options.
The plane in yesterday’s emergency landing had 118 passengers, many of whom felt the end was near for them, prompting them to send text messages to loved ones like “Our plane is going down! I love you”. I would hate to be on a plane in a situation like that.
The plane originally tried to make an emergency landing in Phoenix, but decided to divert to Yuma as the closest suitable airport. Oxygen masks fell and the cabin lost pressure at just around 18 minutes into the flight after departing from Phoenix, on its way to Sacramento, California.
Thankfully no serious injuries were reported and nobody came close to losing their lives. Let’s all be thankful that nobody lost their lives in this, and that Southwest was able prevent any serious disasters. The NTSB and Boeing will oversee repair work on the plane in Yuma, Arizona.
