Reuters reports that the NTSB is calling for changes on the Boeing 737 NG aircraft following an incident last year in which part of an engine on a Southwest Airlines plane broke apart mid-flight, killing a woman who was partially sucked out of a window. NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt said, “This accident underlines the vulnerability of the fan case to become separated when the fan blade detaches at a location that was not anticipated.” CFM International, maker of the CFM56-7B engines involved in the incident, said it “will continue to strictly comply with regulatory requirements, including any changes that might be adopted as a result of NTSB’s recommendations.”
