SALT LAKE CITY – A routine Delta Air Lines flight from Salt Lake City to Washington, D.C. was brought to a sudden end when a windscreen began to shatter at 30,000 feet. With passengers on the verge of hysteria, two heroic Delta Air Line pilots managed to safely land the jet liner in Denver. Delta crew managed to keep passengers calm during the crisis.
According to KUTV, passenger Rachel Wright stated, “They came on the loudspeaker saying that the windshield had shattered, and we were diverting to Denver in about 10 minutes.” Rachel Wright is just one story out of the 198 surviving passengers.
Delta spokesman Anthony Black refused to comment on what caused the damaged and evaded questions on maintenance quality control. In a prepared statement, Delta claimed “Out of an abundance of caution, the flight crew diverted into Denver and the plane landed routinely. Our team worked quickly to accommodate customers on a new plane, and we sincerely apologize for the delay and inconvenience to their travel plans.”
