This Flight Prepared For An Emergency Landing, And This Passenger Caught It All On Video! Scary!
Ethan Williams had was almost home when this flight announced that they would be making an emergency landing in Alaska. The flight was from Hong Kong to Los Angeles, but it had to stop short due to an emergency situation. There was smoke in the cabin, and until they could be sure what was causing it, they needed to land immediately.
At first, the crew thought that they would be making an emergency landing in the water. Everyone put on their inflatable jackets while the flight attendants assisted them and went over the procedures for everyone again. There were nearly 300 passengers on board, and no one was sure exactly what was going to happen. Williams began shooting the video as soon as the announcement was made, and you can see his reactions and the reactions of those around him in his shocking footage.
The cabin deemed the smoke to be non-threatening and took the precaution to land on a remote U.S. military airport located on Alaska’s Aleutian Islands instead. They inspected the aircraft once on the ground and confirmed that the smoke was not harmful and took the plane to Anchorage, where the airline dispatched another plane from Hong Kong to take the passengers on to Los Angeles.
What a terrifying experience! You can see the relief on Williams’ face when they announced the good news. Amazing!
