- 200 people aboard a British Airways plane narrowly escaped
- A piece of snow fell on this plane flying in the air from another plane flying over it
- The windscreen of a Boeing 777 aircraft was completely destroyed by a snowflake
200 people on board a British Airways plane were rescued when a snowflake struck a plane flying in the air from another plane flying over it. The two-inch-thick windscreen of a Boeing 777 aircraft was completely destroyed by a snowflake. It is being told that the second plane was flying at a height of about 1000 feet. The plane was flying at an altitude of 35,000 feet in the air when the accident occurred.
The plane was going from Gatwick in London to San Jose in Costa Rica on Christmas Day. The windscreen of a plane is similar to that of bulletproof glass. These mirrors also remain under high pressure at high altitudes. However, this rare case of an accident is one in a million. Even after this mid-air accident, all 200 passengers remained completely safe, but after the emergency landing of the aircraft, the passengers remained stranded at the airport for a long time.
The flight was delayed by 50 hours due to the passengers’ schedule
The crashed aircraft could not take off immediately and the flight was delayed by 50 hours from the actual schedule of the passengers. The airline had earlier promised that it would be able to fly again only after 90 minutes. But it took a long time to repair the plane and passengers had to wait for this plane for several hours. British Airways has apologized to passengers after they had a bad Christmas.
A spokesperson for British Airways said, “We apologize to our customers for this flight whose Christmas plans went in vain.” We will not fly an aircraft until we are sure that the aircraft is completely safe. We appreciate the patience of the passengers. A few weeks ago, a Boeing 737-800 plane collided with a huge flock of birds. The plane was about to land at that time.
