Airbus co-pilot is sucked halfway out of cockpit window

A flight out of China made an emergency landing after a copilot was sucked halfway out of the aircraft's cockpit.

The aircraft made its emergency landing in the southwest city of Chengdu.

The airline had reached a cruising altitude of 32,000 feet on its route from Chongqing, China, to Lhasa, Tibet, when a loud crack was heard and the windshield flew off, causing both a sudden loss of cabin pressure and the co-pilot, according to Reuters. "The next thing I know my co-pilot had been sucked halfway out of the window". "Luckily his seatbelt was tied", Liu told the Chengdu Business Daily.

While freezing air was blasting into the cockpit, Liu struggled to maintain control of the turbulence that was throwing the plane into chaos. Most of the equipment malfunctioned. and I couldn't hear the radio.

Two crew members were injured in the Flight 3U8633 incident, including the co-pilot suffering a head injury.

The plane was vibrating strongly and it was impossible to read the instruments, said Liu, who was a former flight instructor in the Chinese air force. Passengers were being served their breakfast when the plane plunged suddenly to 24,000ft from above 30,000 feet. "The oxygen masks dropped ..." None of the 119 passengers on board were injured according to reports.


The safety director of the Civil Aviation Administration of China said at a press conference on Tuesday that the plane "shed its right windshield" as it was flying over Chengdu. "People were shocked", the agency quoted an unnamed passenger as saying.

Even with all of that going on, the plane was able to land safely in another part of China after the break.

'I'm still nervous. I don't dare to take an aeroplane anymore.

It comes two months after a woman died after being partially sucked out of the window of a U.S. passenger plane, whose engine had exploded in mid-air.

The scare marks the sixth window-related accident on a commercial airline within a month.

The harrowing incident comes almost a month after a woman on a Southwest Airlines flight from NY died after shrapnel from a blown engine smashed her window, forcing out part of her body.
