Re: 35 injuries; 12 to hospital; Rough air on MRU-MAD

An A359 from Evelop Airlines - a spanish based charter company - hit rough air enroute MRU-MAD. 35 injuries with 12 taken to hospital, no cabin pictures yet but must have been quite scary. No damage to the plane is being reported. I bet some people sitting without belt on. https://www.tellerreport....
