The photographs published on the Internet shows that the airline is pretty much downplayed the extent of the problem, stating «the crack». In fact, on the porthole visible traces of serious damage. In appearance, the glass can be assumed that something crashed. However, the airline still did not specify how the window turned into a continuous network of cracks.
Having identified the problem, the pilots gave the Manager code 7700, informing about the emergency situation on Board the aircraft. At this point awasuno was in the sky over Canada.

The next 10 minutes became passengers in the truest sense of «unforgettable». For a short period, the aircraft made a decline of 8 km, after landing at the airport Bagotville. On Board were 155 passengers and 7 crew members. No one was seriously hurt, and that, in fact, a miracle.
Experts in aviation security argue that if the window did not survive, there would be a catastrophic depressurization of the cabin. Given the speed and altitude, the pilots simply could not cope with the problem. The passengers of flight 668 at the time were in great danger and could well join the list of people who perished in a plane crash.
