China plane makes emergency landing after window cracks
« on: May 30, 2018, 08:01:33 AM »
**I would love to get any thoughts on what is going on with windows cracking lately in commercial aircraft.  Does any one have any insight as to why this is becoming an occurance?"**

An airplane flying from China to Vietnam turned back to make an emergency landing after cracks appeared in a window, just two weeks after another airliner's cockpit window broke mid-flight in the country, state media said Wednesday.

The Beijing Capital Airlines flight bound for Nha Trang in southern Vietnam with 211 people aboard returned to the eastern city of Hangzhou around an hour after take-off on Tuesday, the official Xinhua news agency said.

"After an hour of flight, the plane suddenly jolted violently," a passenger surnamed Zhang told state broadcaster CCTV.
