A South¬≠west Air¬≠lines Boe¬≠ing 737 jet approach¬≠ing Will Rogers Air¬≠port in Okla¬≠homa City dropped per¬≠ilous¬≠ly close to homes, fly¬≠ing below 500 feet over a res¬≠i¬≠den¬≠tial neigh¬≠bor¬≠hood in the ear¬≠ly hours of June 21st.

Air traf­fic con­trollers Mon­i­tor­ing the Las Vegas to Okla­homa City flight noticed the plane miss its approach and issued an emer­gency low alti­tude alert to the pilots. Locals report­ed see­ing the large air­lin­er buzz by at tree-top lev­el, set­ting off alarms and ter­ri­fy­ing onlook­ers who feared a crash was imminent.

The jet even­tu­al­ly regained safe alti­tude and cir­cled around to land safe­ly, though an inves­ti­ga­tion has been launched to under­stand what caused the plane to descend so sharply. Both the Fed­er­al Avi­a­tion Admin­is­tra­tion and South­west Air­lines are prob­ing the incident.

South­west said safe­ty is their top pri­or­i­ty and the rou­tine is being scru­ti­nized accord­ing to the air­line’s strict pro­to­cols. Neigh­bors mean­while were left rat­tled by the dan­ger­ous­ly low over­flight, with some cap­tur­ing video of the alarm­ing fly­by that woke whole blocks.

More details will be ana­lyzed to deter­mine why the com­mer­cial air­lin­er com­pro­mised safe­ty codes in such an alarm­ing man­ner over an occu­pied com­mu­ni­ty. Fur­ther expla­na­tion is sought on both the tech­ni­cal and human fac­tors involved.
