Boeing Fuselage Fails
What: Southwest Airlines Boeing en route from Phoenix to Sacramento
Where: Yuma Marine Corps Air Station, Arizona
When: April 1, 2011
Who: 118 passengers
Why: While en route, after what sounded like an explosion, a three foot hole opened up in the roof, straight through the fuselage. After rapid decompression, the pilots diverted to Yuma Marine Corps air Station. There were no injuries among the passengers but one fight attendant was hurt. Some passengers passed out when their oxygen wasn’t working.
Subsequent to the initial event, more planes were found with similar issues. (More to come)
