Update, 5:27 p.m.: friend LoCO Heidi Walters sent a text message to say that she and her husband, Ken, were traveling on the stopped flight in question. The good news: They’re about to board a different plane to continue their journey home.
“Luckily they had spare parts for us,” Walters joked.
Walters said staff remained calm when they informed passengers of the situation on her previous flight. The air pressure in the main cabin remained constant, and therefore no visors fell from the ceiling.
“It was strange when the plane started descending and then made such a sharp turn,” she said. “Then they reported a cracked windshield. Everything is very quiet and undramatic. Good flight crew!”
The most exciting aspect of the trip, Walters added, is the unexpected low-altitude view of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. And yes, I took a picture. look at the mountains Close less.
