Southwest cancels one PDX flight

Southwest canceled 600 flights this weekend to inspect 79 of its Boeing 737 aircraft, after one of its planes made an emergency landing on Friday.

Only one flight out of PDX International was canceled.

The airlines grounded nearly 80 jetliners after a tear in a Boeing 737-300 Friday, forcing an emergency landing in Yuma, Ariz., on a flight from Phoenix and Sacramento.

Since then the company has found cracks in three more jetliners that are similar to the one that ripped open a 5-foot long hole in Friday’s flight.
