Sounds like a bird or something. Wonder what altitude this happened at?

And a small bomb scare today to, but nothing serious:

The passengers were able to get back on the plane and resume their travels at 4 o'clock.

So were they allowed to get back on the same plane? Hard to believe if the window was indeed "shattered" as the article said. What's the protocol for flying with a broken window? (And I assume it was only one layer of the window that broke, the passengers probably would have noticed a pressure loss).



Why grab a Heine when you can grab a Busch?

The window was replaced. Not that hard.

Makes sense, I just didn't know they'd have the extra windshield pane at SUX.

It doesn't take that long to replace a window.

It was undoubtedly "shattered" in the context that vision was no longer possible through it, not "shattered" in the context of Arnold S. shooting out the windshield of that 727 in the movie "Eraser". Windshields are not single-pane, as the movies suggest, but are actually multi-paned, with electrical heating elements in between.

From the article:
"shattered side windshield is the only visible damage to this large aircraft"

Presuming the A320 is similar to a 737, that "side" windshield is a sliding window, and easily replaceable. They probably didn't have a spare one in SUX, so it came in (with mechanics) from elsewhere. The forward windshield is the time-consuming one to fix, and also involves curing time for the sealant used.

Correct, I remember once in 1989 we waited sixteen hours for Qantas at LAX to replace the windscreen. At least they put us up in a fancy hotel for the night.

No. NW flew a different plane into FSD so the passengers could continue on to ABQ.



The reason New Mexico is so windy is because Texas sucks and Arizona blows.

yeah i have never come across a cockpit window/windshield that was quick to replace (not saying that its not possible). There are a bunch of fasteners holding most windshields in and there is usually a very strange torque pattern that must be used to be sure it seats properly. Also you have sealant curetime and pressurization checks that must be done.

I've seen quite a few ERJ windows being replaced, it takes a while sometimes, especially at a line base. Here we're talking about something a little bit larger.
