Southwest 1380 Pilot-to-Airport Audio

On April 17, 2018, Southwest Airlines 1380 en route to Texas made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after departing LaGuardia Airport. There were 144 passengers on board and five crew. The plane landed safely, and Philadelphia Fire Department units responded with its ARFF rigs, and medic units transported several injured passengers. One passenger died as a result of injuries sustained when one of the aircraft’s windows blew into the fuselage. Below is audio from the cockpit communicating with Philadelphia International Airport.
