Crazy Cracked Windshield Forces Emergency Landing

Per Newsweek,

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.”

 

Bottom Line

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.
