Are you a nervous flyer? Here’s how to find out the age of your airplane

Should you have reason to be concerned about the age of an aircraft?

The official investigation into the failure of a Boeing 737-700 BA engine on a Southwest LUV, -0.05% flight is currently focusing on fatigue in the fan blade and the engine cover. The left engine of the plane exploded midair on Tuesday, sending debris into the side of the plane and breaking a window, and resulting in one fatality. Jennifer Riordan, a Wells Fargo WFC, +1.98% employee from Albuquerque, N.M., died after being partially sucked out of the plane through a broken window before other passengers pulled her back inside.
