A Flybe plane flying from Newquay Airport to Gatwick Airport in England had to make an emergency landing after the cockpit’s windshield cracked shortly after they took off! How scary that must have been for the pilot!
Crazy Cracked Windshield Forces Emergency Landing
The Embraer195 aircraft was carrying 92 passengers when the pilot was forced to turn around and land again at Newquay Airport in Cornwall, England. The aircraft was able to land safely after the incident.
A spokesperson from Flybe confirmed to Newsweek in a statement that the crack occurred and said the captain took “necessary action” to safely land the plane. The spokesperson said the crack appeared “in the outer layer of [the plane’s] windscreen.”
Thankfully, they were able to land safely. No word on what may have caused such a serious crack in the windshield. Glad everyone is ok.
