DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — An American Airlines plane made an emergency landing after hail damaged the windshield and caused some passengers to throw up.
One of the pilots said they could barely see through the windshield.
The airline says no injuries were reported after the Sunday night flight from San Antonio to Phoenix, Arizona landed in El Paso. There were 130 passengers and five crew members. Another plane finished the trip to Phoenix a few hours later.
A spokesman for the Fort Worth-based airline said Monday that the plane was awaiting repairs for damage to the nose, windshield panels and a cockpit side window.
Passenger Jesus Esparza told KENS-TV in San Antonio he saw lightning and hail and the plane dropped “like a rollercoaster.” He gave a sickness bag to another passenger who had already used one.
