Terrifying mid-air emergency compels AirAsia flight to return to Perth

Published on : Monday, October 16, 2017

AirAsiaPassengers on board a flight of AirAsia from Perth to Bali were terrified after their aircraft plunged 20,000 feet in a midair emergency.

 

Flight QZ535 was compelled to return to Perth Airport on Sunday morning, just 25 minutes into its flight, following a technical issue that had forced the cabin to lose pressure. Oxygen masks dropped from above the seats and passengers were asked to get into a position as the plane plunged abruptly, as much 10,000 feet from 32,000 feet.

 

One of the passengers on board, Clare Askew said that the reaction of the crew members of the airline made the ordeal much more agonizing.

 

The flight had been carrying 145 passengers.

 

A passenger named Leah told a regional news media that she picked up her phone and sent a text message to her family, and the scenario was quite perplexing since everybody seemed to be visibly upset.

 

The Perth woman said that the cabin crew had started to panic but left passengers in the dark about the issue.

 

She added that a stewardess started running down the aisle suddenly. Then, soon afterwards the masks fell down and people started panicking. The plane landed safely in Perth and the passengers rescheduled for the later journeys.

 

AirAsia said its engineers at Perth Airport had been investigating the aircraft.
