As thunderstorms and heavy rains across the region impact life, including affecting flights, passengers on a Saudi airline got the shock of their lives as they flew in stormy weather.
The mobile video of a Saudi commercial flight experiencing major turbulence went viral on social media on Sunday (March 26), showing passengers panicking as the plane is suddenly shaken up by strong winds.
Although the veracity of the video can not be confirmed, Al Bayan reported that the flight was enroute from Al Baha to Jeddah, when the incident took place.
In the shaky video, the wing of the plane can be seen passing through thick clouds. Only a couple of minutes after, the camera shakes. The plane enters dense clouds before getting ‘bumped’ by strong winds. As the plane is violently shaken, passengers can be heard screaming and wailing.
Fortunately, the pilots quickly stabilised the plane, preventing any untoward incident.
In meteorology, turbulence is the irregular motion of the atmosphere, as that indicated by gusts and wind.
