Video: The Southwest Swap

Video: The Southwest Swap

From The Dallas Morning News aviation writer Terry Maxon:

I love to see videos that show how airplanes are built, modified, repaired or dismantled, and Southwest Airlines has put out a video showing an engine swap on a Boeing 737.

Thanks to Southwest’s Mike Nutting, we know from the Nuts about Southwest blog that the changes take four to seven hours, are primarily done at five Southwest maintenance bases and that Southwest mechanics performed 154 engine swaps in the past year.

  1. Using adjustable pliers to remove and place components? Not a good sign.
