Hole Found in Southwest Plane’s Engine

(Thanks to reader Pierre for the heads up)

A Southwest Airlines pilot noticed a vibration coming from one of his 737’s engines on a November 17th flight from Dallas Love and decided to return to the airport.  Upon landing he noticed a large-ish hole in the engine (see here for photo).  Investigators are looking into the cause, but I’ll give Southwest props for sending a letter to every passenger explaining exactly what happened.
