Must have been terrifying, glad no one was injured.

Looks like it was a 727-200 and it skirted the storm all the way down to MIA and crossed the squall line prior to final approach.

"Thank god for landing this plane"

Or maybe thank 2 good pilots...

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

LOL, that wouldn't do anything and I don't even think that there is a button that releases the masks.

Glad that they made it though, maybe this will get them to play better!

Forget that button. He should have flipped the "make turbulence stop" switch. It's his own fault.



Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

There are very good reasons as to why there are no buttons for passengers to push to drop the masks...6 year olds and this guy...
