Sichuan Airlines pilot 'sucked out' of plane survives

The co-pilot of a Chinese passenger jet has survived after been partly sucked out of a windscreen which blew out mid-flight.

The window of a Sichuan Airlines flight blew out at 32,000ft partly sucking the co-pilot out of the window forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing.

The BBC reported that the co-pilot was wearing a seatbelt at the time, allowing a recovery to be made. He was dragged back into the cockpit during the emergency landing.

The plane made a safe landing with all 119 passengers on board not harmed. The pilots have received plaudits for the safe recovery of the aircraft.
