Southwest Flight Makes Emergency Landing in Cleveland Due to Broken Window

She Did'Incredible Job: Donald Trump On Pilot Who Landed Jet After Engine Fail Donald Trump praised Southwest pilot Tammie Jo Shults for her life-saving actions

The plane, en route to Newark from Chicago, landed in Cleveland with no injuries reported.

Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Brandy King said the pilots did not declare the event an emergency, and the plane did not lose cabin pressure.

A Southwest Airlines flight made an emergency landing after a window cracked.

Southwest Airlines passengers received another shock Wednesday after a large crack appeared in a window just two weeks after a tragic accident saw a woman partially sucked out of a plane.

Banker and mother of two Jennifer Riordan died after being partially sucked through a broken window on a Southwest Airlines flight from NY to Dallas on April 17.

If today's event did end up having a similarly engine-related cause, that would be a huge problem for Southwest, whose entire fleet is comprised of 737s.

The airline issued a statement, but didn't say whether anyone had been injured or what caused the window to break in the first place. Some passengers on the flight were "crying hysterically".

One person familiar with the legal team said Flood's selection came in part because the investigation has reached a pivot moment. The biggest change, Cobb's departure removes the strongest voice the president heard on a daily basis not to fire Mueller.


Passenger Alejandro Aguina said on Twitter the crack was located on the "outside" of the plane.

The window on the flight that landed in Philadelphia blew out after being hit by a loose engine part.

Several passengers have shared pictures of a broken window on Twitter.

On Tuesday Donald Trump praised the "tremendous bravery" of the crew and passengers aboard the flight, which was forced into an emergency landing in Philadelphia.

The multiple layers are created to help prevent a total window blowout. The Federal Aviation Administration told Business Insider it would investigate the incident.

The timing of the incident could hardly be worse for the airline, the fourth biggest in the United States.

Dallas-based Southwest has seen a drop in ticket sales since last month's incident. Mann said the pilots were right to make a quick landing.
