This is the terrifying moment a passenger filmed his plane window coming loose mid-flight.

The footage, which the passenger shared on Reddit and has since gone viral, included the caption ‘should I be concerned or?’.

In the video, which the passenger filmed during a budget flight in Chile on November 20, the window frame appears to stick out from the side of the plane. When the passenger prods the frame, you can see how much it moves from its usual position.

People commenting said this was a “crash waiting to happen”.

Another user said: “If that window even slightly becomes open, the cabin will lose pressure and everyone will die.”

However, despite the alarming discovery, the passenger said he wasn’t frightened.

“It was a low-cost airline,” he explained. “The window was totally off its frame.

“I found it funny and recorded the video with my cellphone.”

Meanwhile, Patrick Smith, a pilot and host of www.askthepilot.com said there was no safety risk.

“It’s just a superficial liner that helps protect the actual window,” he told MailOnline.

“I admit that it looks embarrassing and unprofessional, but there’s no safety risk.”
