The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said late Friday night that it was launching a Go team to investigate the in-flight fuselage rupture suffered by a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 earlier Friday evening. According to published reports. the aircraft was headed from Phoenix to Sacramento when the incident happened. The aircraft diverted to a U.S. military base at Yuma, Arizona, and landed safely. The NTSB team is expected to reach Yuma on Saturday. NTSB identified the incident aircraft as N632SW. The Ascend database says the plane in question is a 737-300 that was delivered in 1996 and that was later retrofit with winglets.
