The pilots had to opt for an emergency landing in Quebec after noticing that a cockpit window had shattered, CTV reported Saturday. At one point, the plane had to make a sudden drop in altitude, descending 26,000 feet (almost 8,000 meters) in just 10 minutes.
According to Icelandair, all 155 passengers and crew members were taken to a hotel, while the next plane will take them to their destination point later in the day.
Hi Solomon, Flight FI688 from Orlando to Iceland was on route over Canada when pilots noticed a crack in one of the cockpit windows. Following standard procedures, they diverted to a nearby airport in Bagotville.— Icelandair (@Icelandair) 20 октября 2018 г.
