What’s more terrifying: the spiderwebbed windscreen, or the vertical image?

A Flybe Embraer 195 was forced to return to Newquay after the windscreen badly cracked at 12,000 feet.

Passenger Ray Ellis, took the photo as he disembarked from the 7.25am flight alongside 91 other passengers, yesterday.


Ray added: “The plane slowed down a bit, then they made an announcement that there was a crack in the windscreen and they had to return to Newquay.

‚ÄúNo fuss was made, no drama, all very professional.‚ÄĚ

A Flybe spokesperson said: ‚ÄúWe can confirm that the aircraft operating the flight landed safely at Newquay without incident having returned from airborne following a crack appearing in the outer layer of its windscreen.‚ÄĚ
