DETROIT (WWJ) – A Spirit Airlines flight from Detroit to Tampa, Florida made a precautionary landing in Monday morning after the flight crew had reported a problem.

The plane, which was carrying 146 passengers, landed without incident at Knoxville’s Metropolitan Airport in Tennessee. The emergency landing was believed to be the result of a possible crack located in the plane’s inner windshield.

“The aircraft landed safely and the passengers were brought to the terminal building,” said Knoxville airport spokeswoman Becky Huckaby.

A second plane had arrived at the airport early Monday morning to pick up the passengers.

Crews were on the scene as they continued their efforts to repair the aircraft.

    I took a flight to Atlantic City with my family about 15 years ago, and my Sister and I saw a huge crack running across the front of the windshield. I remember making a joke about it to my Sister, not thinking anything about it at the time. If I’d only known that it was really dangerous to fly in an airplane with a crack like that, I would have brought it to someone’s attention or made an announcement to the passengers myself or something. How do they do their upkeep??
