  • Besides Air India aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation and Aircraft Accident Investigation Board are probing the incident which happened on April 19 soon after the flight took off from Amristar

The Boeing 787 was travelling from Amritsar and Delhi last Thursday when it experienced more than 10 minutes of turbulence, The Times of India reported.

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.

The three passengers who were injured were not seriously hurt but were treated upon landing for minor injuries.

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

India's Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and Aircraft Accident Investigation Board (AAIB) did not respond to a request for comment. A window panel also fell off during the incident.

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




The banking govt suffered head accidents after the jet exploded on Southwest flight 1380 from NY to Dallas.

The nightmare flight - from Amristar to Delhi in India - was hit by the turbulence shortly after take-off at 15,000ft. 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.

Adding to the fear, a couple of oxygen masks had also deployed and the overhead panel cover of seat 12-U got cracks. So when the turbulence hit, they hit the overhead cabin because of a bump.

The airline equivalent of a "wardrobe malfunction" reportedly caused panic on the flight, but a viral video of the incident, captured by a steady-handed passenger, showed that all 240 passengers onboard were remarkably composed (I would have gone into Bollywood-esque hysterics before passing out).

The turbulence left at least three people with minor injuries and caused a window panel inside the aircraft to break away, said four airline officials.
