NEWARK, N.J. – A crack in the cockpit windshield forced a Newark-bound United Airlines flight to be diverted to Canada Thursday morning, an official with United said.
After United flight 162 took off from Glasgow, the crew reported a crack in the windshield of the flight and diverted the plane carrying 164 customers and eight crew members, according to a United Airlines spokeswoman.
The Boeing 757 landed safely at Canada’s Gander International Airport, the spokeswoman said.
The airline is working to get a new aircraft to take the customers to their final destination, she said. There was no estimated time of when that would happen.AlertMe
