Plane makes emergency landing in ABQ

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Passengers on a Delta Airlines flight got a scare this weekend.

The flight from Atlanta to Los Angeles had to make an emergency landing in Albuquerque after the cockpit windshield cracked.

CNN reporter Jennifer Squires was on the plane and snapped a photo of the damage.

Squires says the pilot told passengers that pressure caused the cockpit windshield to arch, bubble and shatter.

The plane did not lose pressure.

Squires says she was impressed with how calm the pilot and crew remained during the incident. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
