A number of pax (9 or 13, depending on what report you read) were injured after a CAL 744 entered turbulence and suffered a hard landing at Denpasar AIrport, Bali, after a flight from TPE.

Incident occurred today; inital reports sketchy. No visible damage to airport, but there may be structural damage.

I have just heard the news report about this 744 landing on ClassicFM. There seem to be some rather badly injured passengers. Did not catch all the details except that they talked about turbulence. PPRuNe forums doesn't have much more information than there is here for the time being. Nothing on the BBCNews site either.


There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

For the few of you who read Bahasa Indonesia, here is a local news report:

http://www.detiknews.com/read/2008/0...elamat-dari-insiden-china-airlines

It says that there are 13 people injured, 8 of whom have been taken to hospitals. The article does not say anything about a hard landing. It only mentions that the flight (CI687) encountered severe turbulence while overflying North Sulawesi enroute from Taipei to Denpasar, Bali.

If there were a hard landing, it must not have been very serious as the return flight CI688 left DPS only 54 minutes late and is expected to land in TPE about 45 minutes late.

Oops, sorry ... aircraft, of course!

It's not CO...We no longer utilize 747's...and we never had -400's...

CAL = China Airlines. (I thought Continental was COA?)

CAL=Continental Airlines in the stock market. So it makes it confusing. But COA is ICAO code, and CO is the IATA code.

Same newspaper claim that the airplane lost 3000 meters altitude fast during the turbulence.

As reported by passengers? Losing 10000 feet is not likely unless the plane entered a vacuum.
