“We heard a loud boom at about 10,000 feet. Sounded like a 18 wheeler tire blowing and we started smelling smoke,” passenger Stephanie Miller said.
Flight data showed that the plane descended from an altitude of 30,000 feet to 10,000 feet in just over eight minutes.
A spokesperson from the airline told ABC News that the plane, SW Flight 3472, suffered a “mechanical issue with the number one engine.”
Not only is flying in a plane a MISERABLE experience nowadays, it’s also a dangerous one. The overwhelming greed of the airlines has caused a drop in quality of service, and mechanics. They don’t build planes like they used to and it’s starting to show.
