Cracked windshield forces emergency landing at LaGuardia Airport

The plane made an emergency landing at LaGuardia Airport on Saturday morning after its pilot noticed a crack in the windshield. There were no passengers on board.

Delta said the windshield had a thin crack and even though the plane remained fully pressurized the pilot declared an emergency while landing “out of an abundance of caution.”
