EVERETT — The Southwest Airlines airplane that broke down midair in a fatal accident last month has made its way to Everett for repairs.
KING TV reports that the twin-engine Boeing 737 was flown to the Aviation Technical Services facilities in Everett’s Paine Field on Monday.
The facility conducts major services on Boeing aircrafts.
Southwest Airlines says the plane was released from the National Transportation Safety Board’s investigation.
The left engine has been replaced.
The plane remains out of service.
Jennifer Riordan’s death on the April 17 flight was ruled accidental.
She died of trauma after being partially sucked out of the plane through a window when an engine blew out at 30,000 feet.
The new airport terminal under construction at Paine Field has commitments from Southwest Airlines, Alaska Airlines and United Airlines for up to 24 daily flights, mostly to destinations in the West and Midwest.
