Turbulence Causes a Window Panel To Fall Off An Indian Aeroplane

While the Directorate General of Civil Aviation has initiated a probe into the incident Air India is yet to issue any statement

The inside of a window panel (18-A) came off.

The incident, which one of the plane passengers recorded on his mobile phone, caused three injuries and several overhead oxygen masks to be dropped.

A senior official of Air India told in Times of India report, "This was a freak high level turbulence".

The DGCA has already started probing the high-level turbulence incident and has also informed the Aircraft Accident Investigation Board.

Recently, there was a shocking incident on a domestic American airline: after an engine burst, the shrapnel had shattered an aircraft window and a woman passenger was nearly sucked out. The turbulence caused panic among passengers as an interior panel covering a window fell off due to the turbulence.

"The duration of Amritsar-Delhi flight is about 35 minutes and on April 19, the flight was full with over 240 passengers", another official said.

For passengers aboard an Air India aircraft flying from Amritsar to Delhi on the 19th of this month, their worst nightmares about air travel came true.

The latest mid-flight terror left numerous Boeing 787 Dreamliner's 240 passengers in tears. According to government officials, the Department of Investment and Public Asset Management guidelines on strategic disinvestment would make it necessary to include a clause which would safeguard against asset stripping by the strategic partner post disinvestment.

The Air India aircraft was rocked by turbulence shortly after take-off because the aircraft reached 15,000ft after which lasted almost half of its journey. One of the injured passengers received stitches after the jet landed safely at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport. The outside part of the window, however, was not broken and no de-pressurisation occurred during the flight.

Thursday's incident is similar to that of a Singapore Airlines flight in October 2014, when an Airbus A380 landing in Mumbai encountered sudden turbulence during its descent, injuring 22 passengers and crew.

Forty-three-year-old mum Jennifer Riordan was pulled back into the plane by other passengers but died from her injuries. Later, they took their connecting flights for onward journey.
