In the jet age of passenger flight, I think only about 1 or 2 people have been killed during in-flight severe turbulence but have have their been more? I wonder about any severe injuries from severe turbulence, that is major head trauma, back and neck injures and major broken bones.

Although not caused by severe turbulence but by severe pitch over 7 un-belted passengers where killed in a Falcon 900 bizjet over Romania. Those with belts on, including the crew, survived. This aircraft was repaired and is back in service.
