An Icelandair Boeing 757-200, registration TF-ISJ performing flight FI-688 from Orlando,FL (USA) to Keflavik (Iceland) with 155 passengers and 7 crew, was enroute at FL350 about 50nm southeast of Bagotville,QC (Canada) when the crew observed arcing in the right corner of the captain's forward windshield. The crew turned the windshield heating off, however, shortly afterwards a loud cracking sound was heard. Both flight crew donned their oxygen masks, declared Mayday and initiated an emergency descent but stopped the emergency descent at about FL250. The crew continued a normal descent and diverted to Bagotville for a safe landing on runway 11 about 20 minutes after leaving FL350.

The Canadian TSB reported the crew noticed that the cabin pressure remained constant while descending through FL250 and stopped the emergency descent, the captain removed his oxygen masks while the first officer kept his oxygen mask on as a precaution. A normal descent and diversion to Bagotville followed.
