No injuries were reported. However, this was a
close call for Flight 4013 as the Boeing 737-700
needs about a 5,000 foot runway to land on. The
runway that Flight 4013 landed on was 3,738 ft.
It was reported that the pilot landed hard, used
full brakes and burnt rubber could be smelled
from inside the aircraft. The intended airport
runway was 7,140 feet long.
Diane Coplan a passenger onboard the flight said
"The flight came to a very abrupt end, almost
like a crash. It just dropped to the ground and
all of our bodies were accelerating forward very
fast. You're holding on to the seat in front of
you, not knowing what was happening."
Flight 4012 departed Midway Airport in Chicago
for Dallas, Texas with a stop at Branson
Airport. The passengers safely disembark from
the aircraft were bussed to Branson Airport.
Southwest Airlines brought another aircraft in
and the passengers were then flown to Dallas.
