    American Airlines flight video of bad turbulence.


    "An American Airlines jet encountered severe air turbulence shortly after taking off from Seoul, South Korea, prompting an unscheduled landing at Narita International Airport in Tokyo after 14 people asked for medical attention.

    The airline says four passengers and a crew member needed hospital treatment, but none of those injuries are life-threatening."





    Was on a flight in a rickety ass plane in Russia one time. It was pretty damn close to this. It gets scary. :scared:

    I effin hate planes. It is just not natural for a human to be 30,000 feet in the air.

    Yeah not a fan of flying at all but I do it and say F it. Loved bus travel more than plane travel when I played hockey haha. I know some guys who had to take at least a 1mg of xanax or the little bottles of vodka OR combined them. :snicker:

    I get air sick just watching the video.! On a flight back in the 80's it was so rough that all the passengers gave the pilot a standing ovation when we landed.

    My dad flies small planes as a hobby so I grew up in a 4 seat and am not scared of turbulence generally.

    Was on a flight once that hit crazy air and suddenly dropped -- anyone who wasn't wearing a seatbelt flew straight up and crashed into the ceiling. I was in my belt and fine but every overhead bin opened, things fell down etc. Had to land in Chicago (it was SFO to EWR) and get a new crew as one stewardess had a compound fractured ankle and another left in a cervical collar. At least 20% of the plane fear-barfed into those bags after it happened. Unpleasant.

    And that is why you wear a seat belt while on a plane........

    I had a layover at that airport on a trip back from China a few years ago. As we approached, the pilot came on and told us that landing at that airport is almost always an adventure. He flat out told us that the plane was going to seem almost sideways across the runway right before it touched down, and that it would be on purpose, and not to panic.

    He wasn't kidding. About 10 feet from the ground, the plane was pointing at between 9 and 10 on a clock (if 12 was the runway in front of us). I could literally see the end of the runway BEHIND us out the window.

    One of the rear wheels touched first, and it yanked us straight, and the plane SLAMMED down.

    It was the craziest couple minutes I've ever had in a plane. Everyone applauded after we started slowing down.

    Exactly. Turbulence is NOTHING to these planes. If the original 707 prototype could do a barrel roll it gives you an idea of how much stress the airframe can take.

    I've been in 40 foot seas on a cruise ship in the Caribbean when it skirted a hurricane. Nausea-inducing but not unsafe. And it went on for hours and hours and hours, unlike turbulence where you can either climb or descend to get out of it.
