American Airlines flight AA280 carrying 240 passengers and 15 crew members from Seoul to Dallas yesterday experienced a mid-air scare over the Pacific Ocean and was forced to make an emergency landing near Tokyo.
The flight was said to have entered winds up to 150mph- causing a violent shaking which lasted for around an hour. 15 out of the 240 passengers on-board sustained different injuries during the turbulence, but are glad they made it out alive.
The emergency landing saved the situation a passenger said when the plane landed. More photos below.
