Boeing is taking measures to prevent windshields from cracking on Boeing 777 planes following three such incidents this year. For instance, Alitalia Flight 610 was over the Atlantic on its Rome-to-New York flight last July when faulty wiring in a window heater caused a fire and cracks in the windshield. An emergency landing in Shannon was carried out. (AP)
