just..... wow!!! to those pilots. Helluva landing. Can't say I would want to EVER be in those shoes even though my instuctor trained me to land with certain control failures.

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

Wings buckled, elevators sheared off, I'd bet they came within 30-50mph of total structural failure, that's fucking crazy. Glad they're safe and sound though.

It happens, one of our planes was flying along at 35,000ft and bang the first officers windsheild spider webbed. Some times shit just happens. Check out the pic of a engine faliure that happened a few weeks ago.

These guys didn't a great job landing that plane. I would need a seat cushion extractor tool after that.

That is incredible. I'm glad they made it home and landed safely.

So Dave, what would cause the windshield to spiderweb like that? An impact, faulty manufacturing, poor maintenance?

They are very lucky they woke up when they did.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

It could be all of the above. The windshields are very stong. The are made of multiple layers of plexiglass. It's hard to guess why it happened in thier case. If they were just flying along and it happened it could be from faulty manufactring. If there was a weakness in the windshield the stress from the pressure changes would over time cause it to fail. An Impact would do it also. Bird strikes are bad! Small birds just leave a nice mess, but larger birds are a problem.

the king air, the a/c in question, was on a complete ground stop years ago from bolts in the wings dropping out of place or bending, allowing the wing to "buckle" like that. as far as i know, they hadn't had an issue with them since then. i would shoot for somewhere in the range of 4-6 G's got put on that airframe in a drop resulting in that damage.

here's the flight log...check out 10:22 am
