PHILADELPHIA – The pilot the heavily damaged Boeing 737 of Southwest Airlines safely in Philadelpia at the ground, gets all the praise for her performance. Tammie Jo Shults (56) remained extremely cool, as appears from the communication with the traffic control that was released. “There’s a hole in the plane and someone is to the outside sucked,” says Shults in a calm tone.
Tammie Jo Shults (56) put rampvlucht’ 1380 safely to the ground.
Shults, who, with 143 passengers, was on his way from Dallas to New York, decided on 10 km altitude to an emergency landing after one of the engines exploded and the fragments of a window destroyed. A woman was then to the outside sucked, but could again be drawn. The woman later died of her injuries.
Shults earned her pilot’s license in 1983 and then went to work for the navy. She was one of the first female straaljagerpiloten in the U.s. army. According to American media landed Shults in her time with the army regularly with hunters on aircraft carriers. She lives with her husband, also a pilot, and two children in Fair Oaks Ranch (Texas).
Passengers on board of flight 1380 thanked the pilote after they secure the unit to the ground. Shults went after the landing in conversation with a large part of the passengers.
