300 flights have been cancelled and 79 jets are grounded as investigators look into the Southwest Airlines near-disaster on Friday after the fuselage of a Boeing 737 bound for Sacramento cracked open at 36,000 feet causing a depressurization in the cabin and forcing a quick emergency landing. Passengers aboard the aircraft captured the incident with cell phone cameras.
