Co-Pilot Sucked Halfway Out Plane Window After Airbus Windshield Shatters At 32,000 Feet

Submitted by: fancylad 3 months ago in News & Politics

The co-pilot of an Airbus A319 jetliner was sucked halfway out of the cockpit after the windshield of the plane suddenly shattered at 32,000 feet.

The pilot of Sichuan Airlines Flight 3U8633 managed to safely make an emergency landing in the Chinese city of Chengdu Monday, despite being exposed to freezing temperatures and extreme conditions, according to reports in Chinese media.

The co-pilot and one other crew member sustained minor injuries, but none of the 119 passengers was injured, Reuters reports.

The incident bears some similarities Southwest Airlines flight that made an emergency landing after the engine exploded and shattered a window – partially sucking out passenger Jennifer Riordan. The pilot safely landed the plane, but Riordan died of her injuries.

This is not the first time this has happen, quit a few years ago a similar accident happen and the pilot was pushed/sucked out the windshield and survived and was also bent around backward at the waist. It was also at high altitude. He survived and was flying a year later.
