This Pilot Was Partially Sucked Out of the Cockpit Window

Most of the equipment malfunctioned. "The plane was shaking so hard I could not read the gauges", the pilot said, adding that the cockpit's temperature dropped to minus 40 degrees Celsius.

The co-pilot was cut on the face and suffered an injury to the lower back. One pilot and one cabin crew injured. There was an immediate loss in cockpit pressure and temperature drop.

Sichuan Airlines Flight 3U8633 left the central Chinese municipality of Chongqing on Monday bound for the Tibetan capital of Lhasa.

It was the second emergency landing in China in less than a month.

Sichuan Airlines said on its official Weibo account that the flight had experienced a "mechanical failure" without providing further details.

A co-pilot cheated death when a cockpit window broke and fell out during a flight in China. Within 20 minutes at around 7:46am, the captain safely landed the plane at the airport.

According to an earlier report by Xinhua, the captain issued an "Squawk 7700" emergency code after the window shattered, alerting the air traffic control facilities of the unsafe situation. One flight attendant was injured by the food cart before strapping herself into the nearest seat.

The pilot managed an emergency landing despite the window being gone.

The cause of the incident was under investigation, it said. Though an exact cause is yet unknown, an experienced captain told Sina that it may have been due to "poor screws, heating problems or a collision with birds".

The plane had been traveling at 800 to 900 kilometers per hour when the windshield suddenly broke.

On April 15, an Air China flight was diverted after a man briefly took hostage a crew member he was threatening with a fountain pen.

How often do cockpit windshields shatter?

What do you think is happening with airplane windows?

"Every item in the cockpit was flying around". Airbus A319s can carry up to 160 passengers and are widely used around the world by European and USA airlines.

Although the occurrences of windshields cracking happen quite often, the instance of an entire windshield coming off is rare.

One veteran pilot who did not wish to be named said the crew had handled the incident masterfully.

Sichuan Airlines, a regional airline headquartered in Chengdu, operates mostly domestic flights but also flies internationally to countries such as Japan, Canada, and the Czech Republic. Immediately after the breakage, they may enter a descent to below 10,000 feet to avoid catastrophic decompression.
