real-world China Sichuan Airlines pilot 'half sucked out of plane' survives

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

A Chinese passenger jet was forced into an emergency landing after its windscreen blew out at 32,000ft (9,753m), sucking the co-pilot halfway out of the plane.  
Captain Liu Chuanjian said the Airbus A319 had been cruising mid-air when a deafening sound flooded the cockpit.
"There was no warning," he told the Chengdu Economic Daily. 
"The windshield just cracked and made a loud bang. The next thing I knew, my co-pilot had been sucked halfway out."

Thankfully the plane landed safely with only minor injuries reported.
