MAS in Plane Plunge

Tuesday, August 02, 2005

I don't know if this news made in to the local newspapers, but it was on all Australia's breaking news last night.

According to the news, about 200 passengers were on board the Malaysian Airlines flight to Kuala Lumpur and was forced to return to Perth International Airport after the plane experienced instrument problems about 40 minutes into the journey... the plane began shuddering violently and dropping more than a hundred metres at a time over a period of about 90 seconds. Here's the best part... passengers begin to panic after one flight attendant dropped a tray of drinks and another began praying.

That was a close one for MAS. The fact that the flight attendant started praying tickled me a bit. I am not saying that it's worng but I guess flight attendants should be calm and composed when faced with such situation. Anyways, the plane landed safely and the passengers all cheered when the plane touched down without further incident.
