Cracked Window Forces OC Flight To Land

SANTA ANA (CBS) — A flight from Atlanta to Santa Ana made an emergency landing in Dallas Thursday after the plane’s cockpit window cracked mid-flight.

Delta Flight 1795 landed safely in Dallas where the plane was inspected and taken to the gate. The flight’s 145 passengers boarded a different delta flight to John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana.

A photo submitted to by Mike Fleming, showed the Boeing 737’s cockpit window severely cracked, but the glass remained intact.

      What’s sad is that some people will consider your comment ironic.

    Don’t blame this one on a TSA pat down.

    Impact with a large bird like a goose might do it.

    Flying antique airplanes until they literally fall apart and cutting corners on maintenance will do it.

    Maybe strain from repeated pressurization? There was a 737 that had the top half rip off a while back because of metal fatigue…

    lol @ the first and second comment

    that was obviously caused by a piece falling off of an even older U2 spy plane flying high above the 737 that happened to hit the glass.
