The Boeing 777 managed to make a perfectly safe landing in Newfoundland around 1.28 p.m. after the pilot observed a crack in its windshield.


This flight was en route from Milan in Italy to Miami.


Thereafter Stephenville Airport issued a statement on Saturday evening. It stated that the airport at once activated its emergency plan and all services that included the personnel of Canada Border Services. They had been present on site to receive the airplane, crew members and all passengers.


In the statement Brenda Martin who is the CEO of the airport mentioned that the co-ordination between American Airlines personnel and the staff members of Stephenville Airport made sure that all the crucial services that were required by passengers and crew members were met wonderfully.


A rescue flight from New York had been expected to arrive around 8 p.m. on Saturday.


It is yet to be known at this time as to what had actually caused the windshield to crack. This is the third time in the last month that a transatlantic flight has been diverted to an airport in this province.


On 30th September, a plane of Air France that was en route from Paris to Los Angeles had made an emergency landing in Happy Valley-Goose Bay after one of its engines blew over the Atlantic Ocean.
