Bright & Early: A Dose Of Fresh Air Edition


Good morning, Nashville. A Southwest flight from Nashville to Baltimore had a close call yesterday when the fuselage of the plane more or less sprang a leak. A hole appeared in the cabin, about one foot by one foot, and passengers could actually see the sky. The plane was diverted to an airport in West Virginia until Southwest could bring in another plane. Fortunately no one was injured and one passenger had this to say:  “As soon as we touched down and got to the airport in West Virginia, everybody cheered; everybody high fived the captain, some gave him hugs. But, a great crew, great flight crew and great flight attendants. Everybody just did what they were supposed to do.” Yep, sounds like Southwest. Southwest spent the better part of the night performing inspections on the rest of the fleet.

A year ago on Nashvillest: We braced ourselves for Gibson Guitar’s takeover of Second Life, discovered an ex-con’s creative attempt to pick up chicks on Craigslist, and had a few unfortunate run-ins with our state’s toxic/nuclear/hazardous stuff.
