All Nippon Airways' (ANA) Boeing Co's 787 Dreamliner plane with a crack cockpit window is seen at Matuyama airport in Matsuyama, western Japan, in this photo taken by Kyodo January 11, 2013. A crack appeared in a cockpit window on an All Nippon Airway's domestic 787 Dreamliner flight, but the plane landed safely and no-one on board was injured, the company said. The flight, which left from Tokyo's Haneda Airport, landed safely in Matsuyama airport in western Japan Friday morning. "Cracks appear a few times every year in other planes. We do not see this as a sign of a fundamental problem" with Boeing's aircraft, an ANA spokesman said. Mandatory Credit. REUTERS/Kyodo
