Airplane Returns to LAX After Flight Damage
A Christmas Day United Airlines Boeing 757 flight to Kauai returned to LAX 10-minutes after take off when the windshield cracked. The jet and its 178 passengers landed safely and began their journey to Hawaii three and a half hours later.
Earlier this year, news broke that commercial airline safety these days is extremely better than just a decade ago (contrasting that, on Sunday, a small plane in Panama crashed killing a California businessman, one of his daughters and the pilot). Now, if only LAX can stop having a high number of "close calls" on the runway.
