Southwest’s Boeing 737-700 that operated Flight 1380 that was fatal for one passenger earlier in April just left the city where it landed and flew to Paine Field (PAE) in Everett, Washington, on Monday.
The flight path on Flight Aware shows the aircraft registered N772SW taking off Monday morning from Philadelphia (PHL), where it was forced to make an emergency landing after one of its engines exploded and sent shrapnel crashing through a window, killing Jennifer Riordan, 43.

Southwest confirmed that the plane left Philadelphia because it was released from the National Transportation Safety Board’s investigation.
“We can confirm that the aircraft has been released from the NTSB’s investigation and flew to Paine Field today,” an airline spokesperson told TPG in an email.
The spokesperson did not say why the plane flew to Paine Field, but Everett is home to a major Boeing manufacturing outpost, so an educated guess would be that the aircraft would be heading there for some type of further inspection or perhaps for repair.
