Cracked Cockpit Window Forces Emergency Landing

Cracked Cockpit Window Forces Emergency Landing Icelandair made an emergency landing in Quebec after noticing a 20 centimeter crack in the cockpit window. The plane was on its way to Reykjavik from Orlando, Florida, but was diverted to Bagotville, Quebec. Some say the plane dropped 26,000 feet in 10 minutes, causing a bit of a fright to passengers. Passenger Harrison Hove told CTV News Channel, “I was in the back of the airplane stretching my legs, and all of a sudden you hear a ding like you would hear for the 'fasten your seatbelt' sign, and immediately two flight attendants booked it to the front. They didn’t run but it was fast.

In a celebratory moment for inclusivity, a woman in the U.K. recently noticed and shared something she's never seen before in a store window: a mannequin modeling a bridal gown, posed in a decorated wheelchair.

The display was spotted by Beth Wilson, 36, who is disabled herself. Wilson saw the model in Portishead, Bristol and shared a photo of it on her Twitter so people all over the world could also see and celebrate the rare moment of disability inclusivity in fashion.

"This is the first time I’ve seen a wheelchair in a shop window like this (mobility shops not included) and it was so surprising to see and made me feel represented," Wilson says. "So often disabled people feel invisible because we don’t see ourselves in the media much, and especially not modeling beautiful clothes. The reaction on Twitter has shown that it means a lot to other people, too."

The mannequin is in the window at The White Collection, a bridal boutique in Portishead. Wilson praised the shop for not just including a mannequin in a wheelchair in its display, but for decorating the chair with green vines. "Mobility aids are often portrayed as negative things that people want to hide when actual mobility aids like wheelchairs give us freedom," Wilson says. "It’s great that the decorated the chair rather than try and hide it away."

Cockpit Window Breaks, Delta Flight Returns to MSP

Cockpit Window Breaks, Delta Flight Returns to MSP Flight lasted 15 minutes.

While this bridal boutique isn't the first to feature a mannequin using a mobility device like a wheelchair (a JC Penny in New York City had a display including a wheelchair in 2014), as Wilson points out, this sort of inclusivity is exceedingly rare. And if the reaction to her original tweet is any indication, it's something a lot of people would readily welcome and celebrate.

Marvel at these wondrous sculptures made from Babybel cheese wax.
For a while, my kids were clamoring for Babybel cheese in their lunches. Apparently all of the kids in the cafeteria were spending their noontime sculpting the red wax that surrounds the cheese into various shapes. I didn’t realize that they were ahead of a particular trend, as Twitter today highlights the best of a variety of homemade Babybel wax sculptures. @Babybel Wax Golden Gate Bridge... It's even the right color! #wax#waxart#art#sculpture#goldengatepic.twitter.com/3byu0BB9jV— Matt Kelsey (@matt_kelsey) September 14, 2017 Artist Creates #Sculptures out of #Babybel Wrapping #Waxhttps://t.co/Mcrz1nqgN5pic.twitter.
