AirAsia flight to Bali plunges 20,000 feet in midair scare
« on: October 16, 2017, 01:10:15 pm »
PERTH: An AirAsia flight heading to Bali from Perth plunged 20,000 feet shortly after take-off on Sunday (Oct 15) morning, leaving passengers terrified, Australian media reports said.

Flight QZ 535, with 145 people on board, was forced to turn back just 25 minutes into its journey after the pilot was alerted to a drop in cabin pressure, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

It added that a technical problem had caused the plane to drop from 32,000 feet to 10,000 feet without warning.

Passengers on board the plane took videos of the drama that unfolded, as oxygen masks dropped and passengers held on to their loved ones.

Others on the flight told Channel Nine that they had sent text messages to loved ones, fearing they were going to die.

ermmmm ...... so the plane plunges 20,000 feet and the first thing people do is to take out their mobilephones and text their loved ones ...... I thought mobilephones and such electronic devices will interfere with the aircraft avionics? ???  ....

I heard from my friend who's BF is training to be a pilot said this is normal because the pilot tried to relieve the air pressure in the plane quickly. Idk, I ain't no pilot.
