A Vietnam Airlines (VNA) plane carrying 94 passengers from Ho Chi Minh City to Japan safely landed at Narita Airport with a cracked cockpit window on Tuesday, and the aircraft returned home two days later after a windshield replacement. The plane continued its flight and safely touched down on runway A of Narita Airport in Chiba Prefecture at 1:31 pm the same day, according to the Narita Airport Office under the Japanese transport ministry. While the incident was not deemed serious, the damaged cockpit window was nonetheless replaced in Japan, Nguoi Lao Dong (Laborer) newspaper, citing VNA. The carrier confirmed the incident, saying that the preliminary cause was strong winds that cracked part of the surface of the cockpit window glass. Aircraft window glass is multilayered and made of light, super hard, and tempered materials.
