The incident is under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board, which released a preliminary report that one of the engine's fan blades may have failed in flight owing to metal fatigue.

European regulators last month required airlines flying in Europe to conduct the inspection, but the FAA had not yet required them despite proposing a similar directive last August.

In a late night news conference, NTSB chairman Robert Sumwalt said one of the engine's fan blades was separated and missing.

The Federal Aviation Administration ordered a halt to arrivals and departures at the Philadelphia airport and delays were growing, according to an agency website.

All such engines undergo testing prior to certification, including the simulated failure of a fan blade.

In a statement on its website, the company said: "The CFM56-7B engine powering this aircraft has compiled an outstanding safety and reliability record since entering revenues service in 1997 while powering more than 6,700 aircraft worldwide".

They were developed by French-US joint venture CFM International, which says it is the "world's leading supplier of jet engines for single-aisle aircraft".

Remarkable photos show authorities recovering pieces from the shattered engine of Southwest flight 1380 which fell to earth over 110 miles away from the emergency landing site.

Investigators also said the plane landed at unusually high speed because the pilots feared losing control if they flew slower.

Officials say Jennifer Riordan of Albuquerque, New Mexico, died after the plane heading from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Dallas made an emergency landing Tuesday in Philadelphia. A woman sitting next to the window was partially blown out of it. On Tuesday, the airline said it would accelerate inspections and complete them in the next 30 days. The failure set off a catastrophic chain of events that killed Riordan and ended eight straight years without a fatal accident involving a USA airliner. Seven other victims suffered minor injuries. Analysis of the window frame vicinity at Row 14, where the fatally injured passenger was seated, "found no window materials-the acrylic that the windows are made of-inside the airplane".

"Peggy" is Peggy Phillips, a retired nurse, who quickly began an arduous, 20-minute, CPR regimen on Riordan, aided by Needum.

"As a parent, I've said to my kids, "Be kind, loving, caring and sharing, and all good things will come to you", she told the Albuquerque Journal when she accepted the award.

Shults was commended by passengers for her cool-headed handling of the emergency.

"This is a sad day and our hearts go out to the family and the loved ones of the deceased customer", he said.

"We all feel we were simply doing our jobs", Shults and Ellisor said in a statement posted on the airline's social media pages. The pilot, Capt. Tammie Jo Shults, a Navy fighter jet veteran, has been lauded for her calm and expertise in landing the plane safely.

A second bang followed, said Marty Martinez, a 29-year-old digital marketing specialist heading home to Dallas.

"In the event of a decompression, an oxygen mask will automatically appear in front of you".

Just look at the left engine of Southwest Flight 1380, and it's obvious that something bad befell that machine. "OK, and is your plane physically on fire?"
