This is absolutely incredible. I don't know if the story is true, but if it is, that must of been one heck of a flight. Check it out! Also, I can't confirm what aircraft this is. Looks like a 767. Anybody?

Its a Kuwaiti A300 (note the video title says A300, not 767)

This video has been around for years- it actually happened in 2007. It is a Kuwait Airways A300 flying from Mumbai to Kuwait which encountered turbulence..


Happy -go- lucky kinda guy!

Thanks guys! Didn't know when/where this took place. I've never seen the A300 cockpit.

Story headline shows A300, but judging by the distance from that #2 emergency exit to the rear it looks like a 310.

I notice that the lockers are not open.

also the stuff on the floor looks like food trays, not locker luggage.

True. Had the overhead bins opened, you would have seen more injuries.



The 747: The hands who designed it were guided by god.

All the more reason NOT to stuff them with bags AND souvenirs AND duty-free goods and so on.
On a recent BNE to SYD flight, we were advised before push back that the delay in boarding was from a passenger receiving a nasty head injury from a falling bag when the luggage bin was opened on arrival at the gate. You don't need turbulence to create a danger from items stored in luggage bins...
