Narrative:
On September 3, 2020, about 0715 central daylight time, a Cessna 340 airplane, N5178J, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The pilot was not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.
The pilot said he was flying from Sundance Airport (HSD), Oklahoma, to Burnet Municipal Airport-Kate Craddock Field (BMQ), Texas, at 18,000 ft, when the right windscreen blew out 50 miles southwest of Oklahoma City. The pilot returned to HSD and landed uneventfully. The windshield is considered part of the structure of a pressurized aircraft, therefore the airplane was substantially damaged. The airplane was retained for further examination.
