About 40 minutes after takeoff, the right cockpit windshield on a Sichuan Airlines flight broke off, causing decompression at 32,000 feet and leading to an emergency landing in Chengdu, China.

The pilot who was sitting in the right-hand seat suffered scratches and a wrist sprain, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of China's (CAAC) Southwest Regional Administration. Chinese social media users praised the pilots for landing the flight safely without incurring any passenger injuries.

The cockpit experienced a sudden loss of pressure and drop in temperature and when he looked over, the cockpit's right windshield had shattered. "The next thing I know, my co-pilot had been sucked halfway out of the window", Liu told Chengdu Economic Daily after making an emergency landing, saving the lives of all 119 passengers.

The flight was reportedly at 32,000 feet-about a half hour into the flight- when Captain Liu Chaunjian said he heard a loud noise in the cockpit.

Sichuan Airlines said on its official Weibo account that the flight had experienced a "mechanical failure" without providing further details.

According to data from Flightradar24, Flight 3U8633 departed Chongqing at approximately 6.30am on Monday morning.

"The windshield cracked suddenly and gave a huge bang".

Despite these difficulties and the intense cold, the pilot managed to slow the aircraft from its original speed of about 800-900 kph and land in about 20 minutes.
