Remark Photographer
N791AN / 7AY (cn 30254/289) American Airlines flight 1945 MIA-DFW as we approached DFW after a short flight from Miami we were told Dallas Fort Worth was closed due to heavy rain, strong winds, and low visibility. This view is moments prior to entering a violent storm cell which shook our 777 around like a tin can, opening overhead bins and periodically initiating the emergency oxygen masks to drop down. Some nice hail damage also visable on the wing here. Taken from seat 10F Business Class.

How could a non-depressurization situation cause oxygen masks to drop?

A visitor from Malaysia posted Wed June 17, 2009:
Ermm, opening overhead bins, oxygen mask dropped down...doesnt that already made passengers scared even before nothing is yet to happened. Thank God nothing serious happened...4* from me

Gotta love those Texas-sized storms!! I always visit my friends in Dallas in the spring:)

I love flying through storms

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 6, 2007:
If this storm is either a rain storm or a strong thunderstorm, I hope the pilot had fair visability.
I always wonder how it feels to be on an plane during rain.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat August 4, 2007:
As a professional pilot I would be using my weather radar and stormscope (if fitted) as well as ATC to deviate round bad weather. No one in their right mind flies through that stuff if there is another option - and there is always another option! ;) The danger that bad weather can pose to flight safety is not to be joked about as well as the very expensive repairs that often result!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat August 4, 2007:
Cool picture Dan! Also very odd to see that hail damage on the wing!

A visitor from Turkey posted Fri August 3, 2007:
Peheww... what a story. Shaking 777 around like a tin can. Gotta feel that, it'd be a good experience.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri August 3, 2007:
Good! What an adventurous flight! Those clouds must be CB, so wide ,so thick!

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 3, 2007:
Stuning & spectacular shot ! Wonderful details in the skies. Going from the calm into the violent unpredictable storm.

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 3, 2007:
Ahhh, don't we rely on those noble men to pilot heavies through the most violent storms to bring us down the ILS to where we need to go . . . what a wonderful profession

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 3, 2007:
Interesting... While I cant see the wx return upfront I would be calling atc to get around that stuff any way they could work it.
