Southwest Jet Leaves Yeager Airport, Returns to Dallas


Southwest Jet Leaves Yeager Airport, Returns to Dallas
Posted Saturday, July 18, 2009 ; 02:09 PM

CHARLESTON -- The Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-300 - which developed
a one-foot-by-one-foot hole in its fuselage while in mid-flight on
Monday, necessitating an emergency landing at Yeager Airport in
Charleston, is now back at its home base in Dallas.

After the hole was repaired, the plane took off from Charleston around
12:45 p.m. Friday, landing in Dallas a couple of hours later.

It remains unclear what caused the damage, which appeared mid-cabin on
the top of the jet.

The incident prompted Southwest to inspect all 200 of its Boeing
737-300-series jets this week at hangars across the country.

No other similar problems were discovered, and the planes are now back
in service.
