Captain Liu Chuanjian speaking to Chengdu Economic Daily said that there was no warning when the Airbus A319 had been cruising, before a deafening sound flooded the cockpit.

The CAA said the windshield showed no signs of malfunction that required any maintenance prior to the incident. Pilot Liu told that after this, I informed the air traffic control and followed his instructions, after which we got all the safe land.

The harrowing incident comes almost a month after a woman on a Southwest Airlines flight from NY died after shrapnel from a blown engine smashed the window, forcing out part of her body as other passengers pulled her back in. Luckily, he had the belt buckled up.

It was no easy task bringing the plane in for an emergency landing as it was "jolting strongly", making the aircraft hard to control. This incident is very unusual and only further investigation will lead to a resolution, Zhang added.

The Sichuan Airlines passenger flight took off from Chongqing, in southwest China. It also has worldwide routes to Canada, Japan and the Czech Republic.

No passengers were injured in the incident but the pilot sitting in the right seat, who is usually the first officer, suffered scratches and a sprain, the Civil Aviation Administration of China's (CAAC) Southwest Regional Administration said on its website.


A Sichuan Airlines flight headed from China to Tibet had to make an emergency landing after some of the windshield in the cockpit shattered in the middle of the flight.

"It happened as the flight attendants were serving our meals". Passengers were being served their breakfast when the plane plunged suddenly to 24,000ft from above 30,000 feet.

Mrs Riordan, a banking executive, was pulled back into the aircraft by other passengers, who attempted to resuscitate her, but she later died of her injuries. "The oxygen masks on the plane all dropped out", he said. In August 2015, a Delta Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Colorado after its windscreen and nose cone were badly damaged by hail. Chinese internet users praised the pilot's levelheaded response during the harrowing incident but also wanted to know what caused it. "They used the wrong screws", when installing the window, Goglia says.

Sichuan Airlines reported on its Weibo account that an aircraft had suffered a "mechanical failure".

A pilot is being called a hero after making an emergency landing when the plane's windshield cracked mid-flight.
