United Airlines, Cracked Windscreen

A United Boeing 767-300, registration N674UA performing flight UA-56 from Paris Charles de Gaulle (France) to Newark,NJ (USA), was enroute at FL320 over the Irish Sea about 200nm east of Shannon (Ireland) when the crew reported the first officer's windshield cracked, descended the aircraft to FL140 and diverted to Shannon for a safe landing on Shannon's runway 24 about 45 minutes later. A replacement Boeing 767-300 registration N652UA departed Shannon about 8 hours after landing and is estimated to reach Newark with a delay of 8 hours.
