Plane lands with hole in fuselage

Passenger jet makes emergency landing in California after its fuselage ripped open mid-flight.

    A Boeing 737 was forced to make a dramatic emergency landing in California, after a gaping hole ripped open its fuselage.

    The noise was like a gunshot, those aboard tell Al Jazeera.

    There were only minor injuries among the 123 people on board, but for the passengers aboard, the descent on Friday was a terrifying experience.

    US airline Southwest has grounded 81 of its Boeing 737 fleet following the incident.

    Al Jazeera's John Metherell speaks with some of the passengers about what happen.
