Angry Indian Airlines Emergency !!

Read on a newspaper that a Indian Airlines (presumably 320) developed a crack on the Cap's window and they got it on the ground before it blew in !. Any one know more info on this ?!?!

Well, incident, definitely but as to whether it was really an emergency will depend on which layer of this laminated screen actually cracked, and it is not always so easy to tell until one is on the ground and looking at the screen from the outside, despite what you may hear to the contrary!

Delamination or shattering of the outer glass ply on a Boeing does not affect the structual integrity of the window.
