Hugs For Passengers From Pilot Who Safely Landed Jet After Engine Fail

Debris from an engine failure broke open a plane window.

"The window had broken and the negative pressure had pulled her outside the plane partially", Peggy Phillips, a registered nurse who was on the plane, told WFAA-TV in Dallas. They had no idea he was on the flight until he called them safely from the ground.

Captain Shults and First Officer Ellison said they were just doing their jobs. "On behalf of the entire crew, we appreciate the outpouring of support from the public and our co-workers as we all reflect on one family's profound loss". "They said there's a hole and someone went out".

In her junior year at MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe, Kansas, she attended an Air Force event and spotted a woman in a piloting class, she told an alumni publication.

"She experienced all the same kind of training that her peers, her male peers, did", said Tinjum.

After her name started to appear in news reports on Tuesday, fellow female fighter pilots started to message one another about Capt Shults.

After flight school, in 1989, she was assigned to Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 34 in Point Mugu, California.

Women aviators were excluded from combat missions until the month after Shults got off active duty in March 1993. She later joined Southwest Airlines.

Capt. Shults lives with her husband, who is also a Navy veteran and Southwest pilot.

"Our hearts are heavy", said the statement, which was posted on the Southwest Airlines Twitter account. "That was just classic Tammie Jo".

The hero pilot who made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after an engine exploded told the Herald last night she and the crew met to pray together for the lone passenger killed in the midair disaster.

In the cockpit of the Boeing 737 en route from NY to Dallas, Shults calmly informed air traffic control about the problems and arranged for emergency crews to meet her plane at its new destination. "Could you have medical meet us there on the runway as well?"

Flight attendants frantically performed CPR on the critically injured passenger, who later died at a hospital.




"Injured passengers OK", the air traffic controller says.

"Is your airplane physically on fire?" asks air traffic control.

"No, it's not on fire", she replied, "but part of it's missing". "But part of it is missing".

The controller responded: "Um, I'm sorry".

That drew a seemingly surprised response from air traffic control: "Um, I'm sorry, you said there was a hole and somebody went out?" "Southwest 1380, don't worry, we'll work it out".

She calmly landed her 737 Tuesday with 144 passengers and five crew.

Another passenger, Marty Martinez, heard, "Brace for landing".

Every Thanksgiving, the Shults family opens their doors to those in their neighborhood before people settle down for the traditional holiday feast, sharing cups of hot cider. "All the passengers wanted to know who we owed our lives to", he said. "I'm sure they can take over, '" McCullough says.

"The pilot was a veteran of the Navy", Farnan told CNN.

The captain and her crew have been heralded for keeping their calm during an incredibly risky situation with Shults being described as a "hero" with "nerves of steel".

"[They did] a really good job and remained calm, communicated well and had good teamwork", he said.

"She's a formidable woman, as sharp as a tack", Shults' brother-in-law, Gary Shults, told the AP. The headline writers couldn't resist using a passenger quote about Shults having "nerves of steel".

"She just grew up with a strong faith, has always led a very faith-filled and faith-led life, and I think that's equipped her for all of the things she's done in her life", said Chandler, a San Antonio attorney. God sent his angels to watch over us.
