The airplane's other pilot, Liu Chuanjian, safely landed the plane in the city of Chengdu.

The captain describes a deafening sound as piercing the cockpit, before a sudden loss of temperature and pressure.

Captain Liu said that there was no signs of trouble before the windshield broke.

On May 3, another Southwest Airlines flight made an emergency landing after a cabin window pane cracked in flight.

Liu was reported as saying, "The next thing I know, my co-pilot had been sucked halfway out of the window".

While freezing air was blasting into the cockpit, Liu struggled to maintain control of the turbulence that was throwing the plane into chaos. Many devices were malfunctioning and the plane was jolting strongly. "The aircraft was shaking so hard I couldn't read the gauges".

According to Sichuan Airlines, the co-pilot sustained scratches on the face and minor injuries on the waist, one female passenger had minor injuries on the waist.

Sichuan Airlines said in a post on microblogging site Twitter like Twitter that 29 of the 119 passengers of the aircraft were sent to the hospital for health check-up.

He turned to his co-pilot only to see "half his body suspended out of the window", he said. While some netizens asked for rewarding the captain, others called for better safety measures.

Flight 3U8633 was enroute to Chongqing from Lhasa when the window blew out in the skies above Chengdu. Many windshields will undergo five to six thousand flights, making them more vulnerable to cracks. He survived the incident, which occurred on a BAC-111 jet. The co-pilot suffered a sprained wrist along with some cuts after his ordeal of being partially pulled out of the plane through that hole. In 1990 one of the pilots on British Airways flight 5390 was sucked partially out of the cabin window after its windshield blew out at 23,000 feet.

A common cause of windshields shattering is severe hailstorms. No one was hurt and the passengers were taken to another plane to continue their trip.

Sichuan Airlines is a regional airline based in Chengdu; it mainly operates domestic flights, but also has global routes to Canada, Japan and the Czech Republic. If something abnormal happened where the windshield and a metal part met, it could damage the entire windshield, he said. China said that the way pilot Liu Chuanzhi made the plane successfully landing in the twenty minutes at 800-900 kilometers per hour, it was extremely hard.
