Crew duct tapes Irish airline cockpit window 

The low-cost Irish airline Ryanair was forced to turn back a plane carrying 200 passengers after a cockpit window sealed with duct tape came loose 20 minutes after takeoff. Crews allegedly taped around the edges of the pilot’s window before the plane left on a flight from England to Latvia. “We were kept in the dark, and were terrified,” said one passenger. “I could see guys taping in the windscreen.”
