The cause of the break in the right windshield of the cockpit is yet to be ascertained as investigations are underway. He looked over and saw the right side of the windshield gone.

"There was no warning sign". The pilot explained that the windshield cracked suddenly and that he noticed the co-pilot's body outside the window. The passenger who spoke to China Youth Daily said that he was sitting in the middle of the plane.

"Everything was flying about in the cockpit, a lot of equipment was working badly and the noise was so loud that you could not hear the radio anymore".

"The sudden loss of pressure and low temperature made me very uncomfortable and it was very hard to make a single move when the aircraft was flying at 900 kilometres an hour and at such a high altitude", Liu said.

The Sichuan Airlines Airbus A319 left Chongqing on Monday morning and had just reached cruising altitude when disaster struck.

The windshield shattered about 7 am at least 100 kilometers into the journey. It lasted for about five, six seconds.

He was referring to Chesley Sullenberger, a US Airways pilot who was hailed as a national hero in January 2009 after he managed to save the lives of 155 passengers and crew by landing his stricken airliner in New York's Hudson River.

He described a harrowing scene. People were screaming, while bags and trays were flying everywhere, he said.

A Sichuan Airlines flight had to make an emergency landing on Monday after a cockpit window cracked and blew out of the plane. After landing, several passengers were transported to nearby hospitals.

The aviation administration's Southwest Regional Administration said the crew handled the emergency correctly.

The windshield separation caused rapid cabin decompression damaging cockpit avionics and injuring one of the pilot possibly the first officer.
