China plane makes emergency landing after window breaks

Chinese pilot saves aircraft as window blows out at 32000ft 'Heroic' captain makes emergency landing after aircraft windshield breaks at 32000 feet

A Sichuan Airlines plane flying from the southwest Chinese city of Chongqing to Lhasa in Tibet has been forced to make an emergency landing in Chengdu after the right-hand side of the cockpit windshield broke off mid-flight.

A co-pilot who was on a Sichuan Airlines flight was "sucked halfway" out of the plane after a cockpit windshield blew out.

A Chinese co-pilot is recovering in hospital after apparently being sucked out a cockpit window and had half of his body dangling out of the plane at 32,000ft high, the Daily Mail reports.

Mr Chuanjian, who was hailed a hero after landing the Airbus A319 manually in China, said: 'There was no warning sign. "We just tried our best to reassure the passengers and make everyone believe us that we could touch down safely", Zhou Yanwen, the injured flight attendant, was quoted as saying by China News Service. The next thing I knew, my co-pilot had been sucked halfway out.

The incident occurred while the passengers were being served breakfast, which I imagine would have made the plane's sudden, sharp descent from 32,000 feet to 24,000 feet an extremely messy one.

Prosecutors argued that Ortega was jealous of Marina Krim's life and lashed out in the worst way possible - at her children. Ms Krim was afterwards found by police crying and crying hysterically, clutching for her living child.


The co-pilot and another crew member, who suffered minor injuries, were the only people among the 119 passengers and nine crew members who got hurt in the incident, according to Sichuan Airlines' account on the social media platform Sina Weibo. I couldn't hear the radio.

Zhou said that some air stewardesses were thrown into air and that food was strewn about.

The aircraft was shaking ferociously and he could not read the metres.

"Everything in the cockpit was floating in the air", the captain said. We didn't know what was going on and we panicked. Footage recorded by the passengers also showed baggage falling from overhead lockers and oxygen masks popping out. We experienced a few seconds of free fall before it stabilised again.

Airbus and France's BEA accident investigation agency are sending teams to China to investigate the incident. But he managed to land the plane, to much praise.
