| 12/04/2011

(CNS): A UPS plane was diverted to the Owen Roberts International Airport in George Town on Sunday, after a crack emerged in the cockpit windshield. Although officials at the airport were unable to confirm the details, according to a statement made by UPS Airlines Public Relations Manager, Mike Mangeot, to Cayman27, the Boeing 757 aircraft was en route from Guayaquil, Ecuador, to Miami, Florida, when it encountered problems and was forced to make the unscheduled landing in Grand Cayman at around 7pm.

“The aircraft experienced some issues with one of the cockpit windows, and the crew diverted to the nearest airport out of an abundance of caution. No one was hurt and there was no impending danger,” Mangeot said.

He also said the aircraft was scheduled to have its window repaired today will resume flying by early Tuesday morning.
