IMAGE 16136
AVO Image

Abraded windscreen from the Boeing 747 damaged in the December 15, 1989 eruption of Redoubt Volcano. This view is from 'outside' the plane looking into the cockpit. You can see the frosted right side of the glass that almost completely obscures the background. On the left, the clearer, less-abraded side received only glancing blows from ash particles as the plane flew through the Redoubt cloud. Imagine trying to land your 747 looking through that frosted glass! This instructive piece of aviation history is housed at the UAA Aviation Technology Division in Anchorage.
