When an engine blew on her Southwest jet, pilot Tammie Jo Shults' training helped her stay calm and collected while guiding the plane down safely during the emergency landing. The left engine had exploded at 32,000ft, sending shrapnel smashing through a window.
"I remember telling my daughter as a child, 'Well you know, when your dad was going to flight school there was a woman, and she went in and was paving the way for hundreds of other women to finally say I'm going to do this".
This April 17, 2018 photo provided by Marty Martinez shows the window that was shattered after a jet engine of a Southwest Airlines airplane blew out at altitude, resulting in the death of a woman who was almost sucked from the window during the flight of the Boeing 737 bound from NY to Dallas with 149 people aboard, shown after it made an emergency landing in Philadelphia.
When news broke of Shults piloting the crippled Southwest airliner, the name immediately jarred the mind of one Beeville resident.
