Interesting that a passenger broke a window. However most likely it was just the plastic inner layer. I sincerely doubt that anyone could break or even cause much damage at all to the actual window with anything allowed onto an airplane these days. However it would be easy to punch out the plastic in a fit of rage, and that would justify a diversion since people shouldn't be damaging the plane in flight and they should be offloaded as soon as possible.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

How do you break a window on an Airplane when it is pressurized?

Why would anyone break a window on an Airplane?

Oh lord. It took me a few seconds to realize what that was. At first I thought it was a really weird way for a window to explode or something like that.

The passenger broke the inner layer on CI's newest A330-300. Reg B-18351

The passenger (Vietnamnese US Citiezen) has psychological issues. Medications were found in his bags by the police and the passenger was moved to a hospital for testing after being booked. The passenger, flying with his wife, was supposed to fly to the US via TPE.

According to the local news, the captain declared hijacking and made an emergency landing in Kaohsiung, after the passenger demanded the plane to fly straight to the US. It took several crew members to restrain the passenger, and minor injuries were suffered by the crew. CI has announced that they will seek damage compensation from the passenger.

There is a picture of the plane on A.Net after it landed in Kaohsiung:

One time during our lunch break, we tried to break an old removed 727 pax window (outer pane). We were using a sledgehammer and couldn't even dent it! Then we put one end up on a piece of wood and tried to run it over with a forklift, but it didn't break then either. Very robust, but they do fail once in a very great while.

The innermost window that a pax can touch, that is right next to the shade is very thin and "cheap", and can be easily broken. This part is mounted to the sidewall panel with the shade assembly and is a dust cover more than anything else, and has no structural value at all. The actual window panes mount to the aircraft, and consist of 2 panes, and a special gasket that holds them apart and seals the outer pane to the aircraft cutout frame.

looking at the other windows, where the emergency masks have clearly dropped, the following words leap to mind:

"place the mask over your face and continue to breath normally..."

Our Lunch breaks arn't that amusing apart from Game of Table Tennis with Marshalling Bats  Smile

Its true that the Acrylic Inboard layer is very easy Breakable & Im sure thats what happened.Out of the Two other Panes ie Middle & Outer both are capble of Witstanding the Pressure loads if the Other is damaged,giving time for Replacement on Ground.
