A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700 suffered an uncontained engine failure. A ground stop was issued for Philadelphia International Airport following the incident.
A Southwest Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia after one of its engines suffered a major mid-flight failure.
The failure, which caused the front of the engine to disintegrate, sprayed shrapnel that penetrated the cabin of the Boeing 737-700, causing the jet to depressurize.
