The crack on the 787 ANA flight, which was inbound from Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, was discovered about 70 minutes into Friday’s flight. The flight landed safely.
‘ANA said crew noticed a spider web-like crack in a window in front of the pilot’s seat about 70 minutes into Friday’s flight, which was close to its destination.
“Cracks appear a few times every year in other planes. We don’t see this as a sign of a fundamental problem” with Boeing aircraft, a spokesman for the airline said.’
As Boeing stated above, windshield cracks DO happen from time to time and aren’t an indicator of a major problem.
I’m sure Boeing is not happy with the timing…
