A Sichuan Airlines flight had to make an emergency landing on Monday after the cockpit's windshield broke off at 32,000 feet, causing a co-pilot to be sucked partially out of the plane.
According to Reuters, the Civil Aviation Administration of China's (CAAC) Southwest Regional Administration confirmed the injuries to both the co-pilot and flight attendant.
An aviation blogger said online that the pilot would have had to land the Airbus A319 in hard conditions, with low temperatures in the cockpit, strong winds and some equipment not functioning properly, Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported. The next thing I know, my co-pilot had been sucked halfway out of the window'.
Mr Chuanjian, who was hailed a hero after landing the Airbus A319 manually in China, said: 'There was no warning sign.
Sichuan Airlines Flight 3U8633 had taken off as scheduled from southern China's Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport at 6:26 am and was due in Lhasa, capital of the Tibet autonomous region, at 9:05 am.
The Sichuan Airlines aircraft was flying from Chongqing to Lhasa on Monday morning when the incident happened.
Despite these difficulties and the intense cold, the pilot managed to slow the aircraft from its original speed of about 800-900 kph and land in about 20 minutes. On May 3, another Southwest Airlines flight was forced to conduct an emergency landing after a cabin window pane cracked in mid-flight.
Pictures of the plane posted by users of the Chinese social media platform Weibo showed damaged controls and the missing cockpit window.
A co-pilot who was on a Sichuan Airlines flight was "sucked halfway" out of the plane after a cockpit windshield blew out.
"The windshield cracked suddenly and gave a huge bang". Most of the equipment malfunctioned ... and I couldn't hear the radio.
Twenty-seven passengers received medical checkups in a hospital in Chengdu, but no injuries were detected. Oxygen masks can be seen hanging from the ceiling as cabin crew rush to secure the plane for the emergency landing. He explained that the plane was shaking and that he could not hear well.
An investigation into how the incident occurred has now been launched.
