Chaos at 30,000 Feet: Severe turbulence hit tourist flight to Bangkok caught on cam

Bangkok, Thailand – A shocking video have gone viral online showing the aftermath of a major turbulence that hit an airplane flight to Bangkok.

At least 27 people were injured aboard the Aeroflot flight from Moscow to Bangkok on Monday when their Boeing 777 hit an air pocket, the Russian embassy in Thailand said in a statement.

The airline said the crew was unable to warn passengers of the approaching danger as the turbulence occurred in a clear sky. “Several passengers were injured,” the statement said.

Most of the injured are Russians and includes three babies. The babies were thrown out of their mothers’ arms by the force of the severe turbulence one hour before landing in Bangkok, said a source.

Luggages, as well as food and drinks, appeared to be strewn all over the cabin.

Rostik Rusev posted the video on his Instagram account with the comment: 3 hours ago I was on a Plane going From Moscow to Bangkok, out of nowhere we hit turbulence, that was so bad that it was throwing people around like crazy. Blood everywhere, people with broken bones, noses, open fractures, baby’s with head injuries, I can keep going and going. Thank God we are Alive!

“I can honestly say I have never been so scared in my life before,” he added.

Aeroflot operates two flights a day from Moscow to Bangkok. Thailand is a top destination for Russian tourists; with many visiting the country’s beach resorts.
