Cockpit Window Breaks, Delta Flight Returns to MSP

Water park lovers will find that this Midwestern getaway has it all: plenty of outdoor thrill slides in the summer and an ideal theme park-style escape during cold winter months. Intertwined body slides, multiple funnel slides and tandem tube rides are among the dozens of attractions enticing both hotel guests and day visitors to the 125,000 square foot indoor-outdoor water park. But the highlight comes by way of Master Blaster, an indoor water roller coaster that dips down and shoots back up for a fast-paced thrill. Once you dry off, you can board a six-story Ferris wheel, ride go-karts, or even test your skills on a ropes course or enjoy some upside-down thrill rides fit for kids young and old—all without having to step off-property.

According to a report in the StarTribune, Flight 589 left the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport only to return to the airport shortly after where the Boeing 737 aircraft was met by emergency personnel.

No injuries were reported among the 169 passengers and crew members.

Lisa Hellerstedt, a spokeswoman from Delta Air Lines, said the plane had “an issue with the first officer’s window seal. The flight taxied to the gate, where maintenance [was] evaluating the aircraft.”

This is the second time in three days that an incident like this has caused an emergency landing. On October 21, 2018, an Icelandair flight, traveling from Orlando, Florida, to Reykjavik, Iceland, was forced to land in Quebec when a 20-centimeter crack was noticed on the window of the cockpit.
