Plane forced into emergency landing after window SHATTERS mid-flight

Plane forced into emergency landing after window SHATTERS mid-flight

Dallas-based Southwest said the plane - en route from Chicago's Midway Airport to Newark Liberty International Airport - diverted to Cleveland for "a maintenance review" after the outer pane of a multi-layer window cracked.

Airline officials say more than 70 passengers were on board the flight from Chicago to Newark, New Jersey.

A Southwest Airlines flight to Newark was diverted to Cleveland on Wednesday because of a crack in one of the aircraft's windows. "The aircraft maintained pressurisation, and the flight landed uneventfully in Cleveland".

We will remind that on April 17, a passenger plane Southwest airlines made an emergency landing at the airport of Philadelphia. Last month, the Southwest flight in the headlines had a hole punched clean through the window when an engine broke apart at 30,000 feet, sending [VIDEO]shrapnel into the plane's body and shattering the window.

Rich Robinson, a sheriff's deputy from Sandwich, Illinois, said when the window cracked, everybody in that area hit the button for the flight attendant.

Flight 1380 was forced to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia after parts from an engine exploded.

The United States pushing Saudi Arabia to war against Iran
President Donald Trump has strongly backed Saudi Arabia in its efforts to counter Iran's influence. He added that the presence of US troops in the region is a source of insecurity and violence.

According to CNN, another passenger Passenger Linda Holley texted her son, along with a picture of the window in question.

Of immediate concern is that the engine-a CFM International 56-7B turbofan-is created to contain any pieces of debris that might come loose from it to prevent exactly this situation-engine parts crashing into the plane and causing further destruction.

One of the passenger windows had a crack on the outside, so the plane was diverted to Cleveland and the passengers were immediately put on another flight to complete their trip. Injuries among the 76 passengers no.

"There were no other problems reported with the plane or its engines".

There was no depressurization in the cabin, and therefore the oxygen masks were not deployed, FAA spokesman Greg Martin said.
