Trump to meet crew of deadly Southwest Airlines flight

Alaska Airlines Plane Makes Emergency Landing at HON

"The actions of the crew and passengers of Southwest Flight 1380 show the great character of our nation", Trump said at his desk.

Jennifer Riordan, a mother and bank vice president of community relations from New Mexico, was partially sucked out of a window that had broken before passengers pulled her back inside.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators examine damage to the engine of the Southwest Airlines plane that made an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Southwest Airlines has previously disclosed it is providing USD5,000 checks and USD1,000 vouchers to all passengers who were onboard the affected flight. They include firefighter Andrew Needum, ranch worker Tim McGinty, and nurse Peggy Phillips.

Captain Shults has been widely regarded as a hero for her calm handling of the emergency landing. "On behalf of the entire Crew, we appreciate the outpouring of support from the public and our coworkers as we reflect on one family's profound loss". Shultz was one of the first female fighter pilot in Navy history and has also said flying is her way of witnessing God firsthand.

In a statement released by Southwest on April 18, Shults and Southwest First Officer Darren Ellisor said "our hearts are heavy" and that they felt "we were simply doing our jobs".
