ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – If you’re flying Southwest Airlines, you might want to call ahead. 

A Southwest flight made a safe emergency landing Friday in Arizona, after passengers say a hole opened up in the cabin of the plane.  

Oxygen masks were lowered and the plane descended to a safer altitude before making the emergency landing at a military base in Yuma. 

Southwest has now grounded the type of  Boeing “737” involved in the incident. 

At least 300 Southwest flights have been cancelled around the nation since the incident, including at least a dozen in and out of St. Louis.
