An American Airlines flight (apparently operated by Envoy Air) turned around Saturday when its windshield was seriously damaged after striking something mid-flight.

TMZ broke the news a few minutes ago.

The original post doesn’t mention a flight number. The only information given in that regard is that the flight departed Chicago O’Hare and was en route to Cleveland when the incident took place.

Based on that, it appears the flight was Envoy Air 3408.

Whatever happened, it looks like it occurred over Lake Michigan.
