On May 14, 2018, the cockpit windshield of Sichuan Airlines Flight 3U8633 shattered during the flight, while the safety of 128 people on board was ensured due to the proper disposal of the aircrew led by Captain Liu Chuanjian, and the close cooperation of land and air traffic management departments. Industry insiders generally believe that the difficulty of the half-hour return flight diversion can be classified as “world class”, and is a miracle in the history of global civil aviation.
