DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A Southwest Airlines plane was forced to make an emergency landing Saturday after the cabin started losing pressure. The plane is now undergoing a maintenance review.
Flight 861 was headed from Denver to Dallas Saturday night, and there were more than 100 passengers on board.
Passenger Glen Eichelberger said at around 9 p.m., the oxygen masks came down and passengers were told to put them on because the cabin was losing pressure. Passenger Josh Trimberger said the plane was about 30 minutes outside of Dallas at that point.
