Passengers traumatised after 'freak' turbulence pops plane window from frame

Severe turbulence in Air India flight window panel falls off three injured- Watch

Pilot commanding the Air India Boeing 787 Dreamliner that hit severe air turbulence between Amritsar and New Delhi on Thursday reportedly had "never seen anything like this ever".

The video, captured from within the plane during the period of turbulence, shows a terrified woman sat in her seat as one of the plane's air hostesses trying to fix the broken window panel.

Passengers aboard an Air India flight have been left traumatised after "a freak level" of turbulence left three passengers injured and caused a seat window to from its frame. "AI (Air India) and Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is probing it", said a senior Air India official as quoted by the Times of India. "A window panel inside the plane also came off when the flight experienced turbulence", the officials said.

The flight was completely full and was travelling between Amritsar to Delhi - a journey that would ordinarily take around 30 minutes.

The government expects this to allay concerns of potential suitors about the bidding condition, which mandates operating Air India at arm's length for three years. The officials said the flight experienced turbulence soon after take-off when the altitude was around 15,000 feet due to bad weather.

The cause of the turbulence on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is being investigated and the Aircraft Accident Investigation Board has been informed.

According to NDTV, the Dreamliner is also fitted with a state-of-the-art turbulence dampening system which is created to counteract the effects of instability during a flight. The outside window did not break and there was no de-pressursation.

Following a safe landing in Delhi, the three injured passengers were taken to hospital, the newspaper reported. One of the overhead panels was covered in cracks.

"The person suffered injuries".

The other two were given first aid and went on to take their connecting flights after receiving doctor's approval to travel.
