China, Airbus investigating blown-out windshield on plane

Chinese authorities and Airbus are investigating why a plane's cockpit window detached during a flight, forcing an emergency landing. Sichuan Airlines Flight 3U8633 was en route from Chongqing, China, to Lhasa, Tibet, on Monday morning when the cockpit window on the A319 jet broke off, according to the website of the Civil Aviation Administration of China. The co-pilot's seatbelt prevented him from being sucked out of the plane.
