This is definitely high up on the list of things you don’t want to happen when you’re travelling on a plane.
Redditor_SkipsLegDay uploaded these photos of a plane window after hearing a loud noise on an Air Canada flight to Vancouver.
He describes what happened: “So about halfway through my flight I heard a loud pop, looked out my window at a bolt that flew off the prop and broke through the outer pane.”
That’s completely terrifying but judging from the photo, he stayed pretty calm about the whole thing and handled it like a boss.
“People around me heard it and seemed nervous once they saw the source of the sound. I got up and went to the FA [flight attendant] and quietly told her what happened, she came over to see it then called the pilot. He said it will be fine until we land as the cabin’s pressurized,” he wrote.
“Once we landed and people stopped snapping pics, the pilot talked to me for a while. Said he’s never seen this happen in over 25 years of flying.”
