Boeing Jet’s Window Cracks During Touchdown

On Sunday, a Boeing airplane operated by Alaska Airlines experienced a damaged inner glass while landing in Oregon. This is the most recent in a string of problems with Boeing planes.

On Sunday, en route from Washington, D.C., to Portland International Airport, crew members on board the Alaska Airlines flight discovered a fissure on the inside windshield.

Five layers of windshields—an outside pane, three inner layers, and finally, an inner pane—make up the windshields on the Boeing 737-800s fleet. The airline authorities stated that the other pane and layers can maintain cabin pressure if an inner pane cracks.

One hundred sixty people were on board, including six flight attendants. No one was hurt.

The Federal Aviation Administration has found dozens of problems with Boeing’s 737 MAX airplane production process. According to reports, technicians at one of its significant suppliers resorted to using dish soap and a hotel key card as improvised instruments to check compliance.

33 out of 89 product audits have found Boeing lacking. There were 97 allegations of noncompliance.

John Barnett, a former employee who was about to blow the whistle on Boeing’s dubious quality inspections, died under inexplicable circumstances, putting the business under even greater scrutiny.

The morning before he was supposed to testify on Boeing’s flaws, Barnett was found shot in the head in his truck. Although some have speculated about possible foul play, authorities have concluded that he committed suicide.

Meanwhile, after discovering a break in the cockpit window, the crew of a Boeing jet was compelled to make an emergency landing in Japan on Saturday.

According to an All Nippon Airways representative, the damaged window was on the exterior glass pane that encases the cockpit.

After a complete U-turn, the pilot headed back to Sapporo-New Chitose Airport. It was during the trip to Toyama, which took around 1.5 hours that the break was discovered.

All sixty-nine people on board, including six crew members, escaped unharmed.

The representative assured that the fracture unaffected the flight’s control and pressurization.
