Window Cracks In Jet Over Salina

KSAL StaffSeptember 22, 2014

A 50-seat jet flying to Dallas was forced to land in Wichita after its windshield cracked over Salina.

No one was injured onboard the Embraer regional jet that took off from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Spokeswoman Valerie Wise says the plane was over Salina Monday morning when the pilot said he needed to make an emergency landing at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport.

The jet landed safely. The flight, which was being flown for American Airlines, carried 52 people, including crew.

Investigators are trying to determine what caused the windshield to crack.
