Hero pilot who landed Southwest plane visits the White House

Tammie Jo Shults and First Officer Darren Ellisor, the pilots, attended, along with three flight attendants and five passengers.

President Trump is set to meet with the crew of the Southwest Airlines flight that experienced an engine explosion, killing Albuquerque mother Jennifer Riordan.

Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 was headed from NY to Dallas with 149 people on board in April when it was forced to land in Philadelphia after an engine on the Boeing 737 exploded at 30,000 feet (9,144 metres). Riordan was the one passenger who died during the incident after being sucked out of a broken window, asserting that he would be praying for her husband and children.

Trump said, "She must have been a fantastic woman".

"The courage it took for her to control that situation and really save everyone on board is really just unbelievable", one passenger said.

Apple's working on AR/VR headset with 16K resolution for 2020 launch
This processor would work as a brain of the headset and the headset would be controlled by the built-in processor itself. While Cook has expressed skepticism around clunky, enclosed headsets, Apple has many long-standing patents in this area.

National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) chairman Robert Sumwalt said it was the first passenger fatality in a US airline accident since 2009.

Trump added to the praise that the pilot, Capt. Tammie Jo Shults, has earned for helping prevent a far worse outcome, saying she did an "incredible job".

Chavez claims she's suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety, among other injuries.

"Everybody's talking about it". Shultz was one of the first female fighter pilot in Navy history and has also said flying is her way of witnessing God firsthand. The president recounted how passengers Tim McGinty and Andrew Needum helped pull Riordan back into the cabin, and he lauded nurse Peggy Phillips, who administered CPR on Riordan until the plane landed.

Trump, seated in the Oval Office, was surrounded by the crew members and passengers.
