Apparently she didn't fell by accident, but she jumped on purpose. Sadly enough ...

A Southwest Airlines passenger paid $8 during the emergency descent to go on Facebook live, but didn't properly put on his oxygen mask :D

The FAA ordered additional inspections of fan blades in hundreds of additional engines similar to the one that failed in a Southwest Airlines accident in April 2018.

No crash, but: sometimes investigators are very lucky that an aviation spotter has the images that make it more easy for them:

"...A Korean Air Boeing 777-300, registration HL7573 performing flight KE-703 from Seoul to Tokyo Narita landed, slowed and vacated the runway. While taxiing towards the terminal the aircraft became disabled on the taxiway due to the aft right main gear axle having fractured..."

Historical plane damaged at EBZW Zwartberg.

Apparently blown off the the runway after landing. Groundloop? The plane had only recently arrived at Zwartberg. The specialists at vrtnws describe it as a "sportvliegtuigje" - "small recreational plane".
