Thank god this woman was the pilot of the flight. For an emergency landing, she really kept it together. Tammie Jo Shults is her name is she's actually a baller.
The engine exploded in midair and a woman was being sucked out of the cabin. Pilot Tammie Jo Shults, 1 of the Navy's 1st female fighter pilots & 1st to fly an F/A-18, kept her cool, safely landing a Boeing 737 #Southwest jetliner full of passengers https://t.co/ux0DVjfOXj pic.twitter.com/BspunP6f36— David Beard (@dabeard) April 18, 2018
My initial thought was, "how does one stay so cool during times like these?" Well, when you're a decorated Navy vet, this is probably one of the easier things you've dealt with. They better give her her own Sully movie. Check out the air traffic control conversation below.
