Sichuan Airline's co-pilot almost sucked out of the plane!
Sichuan Airlines had a dramatic evening when a flight from southwestern China to Tibet turned chaotic when a windshield burst open in mid-air, sucking the co-pilot from his controls and nearly out of the window. The windshield shattered on Sichuan Airlines Flight 3U8633 causing the co-pilot to almost be thrown out of the plane. The plane was flying at 30,000 feet at the time on its way to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. Pilot Liu Chuanjian diverted the flight and made an emergency stop in Chengdu, capital of the Sichuan Province. The CAA said the windshield showed no signs of malfunction that required any maintenance prior to the incident. None of the 128 passengers on board were injured, however a member of cabin crew sustained minor injuries. The passengers were put another flight to their destination, according to reports.
