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?

Quoting Byrdluvs747 (Reply 6): Had the overhead bins opened, you would have seen more injuries.
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...
