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

The lawsuit follows the April 17 death of a Southwest Airlines passenger after an in-flight engine explosion, the first passenger death on a USA commercial airline since 2009. "We send our prayers to Jennifer's husband and their two attractive young children", Trump said, adding, "She must've been a fantastic woman". 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.

"He [President Trump] will thank the crew members who safely landed the damaged flight, and meet with the passengers who heroically assisted their fellow passengers", White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters said in a statement.

McGinty, Needum and Phillips were in attendance at the White House Tuesday, praised by the President for their "tremendous bravery".

After the incident, Southwest sent out letters of apology, a $5,000 check and $1,000 travel voucher to the people who were on the plane that day.

Captain Shults has been widely regarded as a hero for her calm handling of the emergency landing.

One of the first women to fly fighter jets for the U.S. Navy, some close to Shults have called her the best pilot they've ever known.

Axis Bank reports Rs 2189 cr loss as provisions rise 3-fold

Initially the emergency landing would have been in Maui, however since the plane was proceeding to movement securely, the pilot proceeded to Honolulu. "We salute you and every member of this crew", he said.

At that point, the flight was near Albuquerque, New Mexico, about two hours from landing in Dallas, the suit says.

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".

Flight attendants Rachel Fernheimer, Seanique Mallory and Kathryn Sandoval were also honored in the Oval Office.

"Not at all", they responded, shaking their heads.
