Southwest Airlines says it has finished inspecting planes grounded since the weekend.
A flight was diverted back to DFW after its crew suspected the tail of the plane struck the runway on takeoff.
Federal records show cracks were found and repaired a year ago in the frame of the Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-300 that made an emergency landing at an Arizona military base after a hole was torn from the passenger cabin.
More information is coming out about the Southwest Airlines’ Boeing 737-300 that had a hole open up on its roof during flight Friday afternoon.
An 80-year-old man is dead after the small plane he was flying crashed and burned near a private rural airstrip in East Texas.
Investigators are looking into what caused a hole to rip open in the fuselage of an airline jet as it cruised at 31,000 feet, causing a loss of cabin air pressure and forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing.
