According to the airline, a 177-person Alaska Airlines flight experienced an emergency landing in the US state of Oregon on Friday. Passengers reported that the plane’s window panel blew out shortly after takeoff.
At approximately 5:00 p.m. (0100 GMT on Saturday), Flight 1282 departed from Portland International Airport and made a safe return “after the crew reported a pressurization issue,” the Federal Aviation Administration stated on X, the former Twitter platform.

Pictures of a plane window panel that had been blown out and emergency oxygen masks hanging from the ceiling were shared on social media.
CNN spoke with passenger Kyle Rinker, who said that shortly after takeoff, a window broke.

Nguyen said to the newspaper, “When I open my eyes, the oxygen mask is right in front of me.” “And the wall on the side of the plane is gone when I look to the left.”

The FAA, Alaska Airlines, and the National Transportation Safety Board all declared that they were looking into the incident.

According to the airline, “the aircraft landed back at Portland International Airport safely with 171 guests and 6 crew members.”

It stated, “Our flight crew was trained and prepared to safely manage the situation, even though this type of occurrence is rare.”
