Trump Honors Hero Southwest Pilot At White House

An Alaska Airlines flight declared an emergency after an oil filter bypass light came on mid-flight

Tammie Jo Shults and First Officer Darren Ellisor, the pilots, attended, along with three flight attendants and five passengers.

President Donald Trump is set to meet with crewmembers and passengers from Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 at the White House Tuesday afternoon, after the flight was forced to make an emergency landing last month when an engine exploded. "We send out prayers to Jennifer's husband and their two attractive young children".

"President Trump will welcome the crewmembers and passengers from Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 to the Oval Office".

Trump later addressed the death of Jennifer Riordan, a New Mexico bank executive who was killed after being almost sucked out the flight heading to Dallas from NY on April 17. "She must have been a fantastic woman". One of the passengers has also sued Southwest, saying she has suffered post-traumatic stress disorder.

The National Transportation Safety Board is still investigating what caused the window to break and what caused the metal fatigue in the area where a fan blade broke off from one of the plane's engines.

The president went on to talk about Tammie Jo Shultz, the pilot who was able to land the plane safely despite the technical failures.

"Everybody's talking about it".

Trump also commended several passengers who came to the aid of other travellers, including a firefighter who helped pull Riordan back inside the aircraft and a retired nurse who administered CPR. Shults, a former fighter pilot with the Navy, was praised for how she handled the hard situation April 17th, managing to safely land the plane.

Trump, seated in the Oval Office, was surrounded by the crew members and passengers.
