Watch: Passengers learns that plane might have to ditch in Pacific

Jump to last reply

On Tuesday night (US time), a Cathay Pacific flight from Hong Kong to Los Angeles was midway in its flight when the crew was alerted to a possible fire and made the decision to land immediately. Here's a link to an amazing video made by one of the passengers as they first learn that there's a problem, then hear they might have to ditch in the ocean, then are instructed to put on the life vests, then told that they'll be landing on a remote airstrip, and finally land. The tension is obvious as word of the possible ditching is first relayed, as is the relief when the passengers hear that they won't have to ditch.

(The plane in fact landed on one of the Aleutian islands, on a military outpost that is available for civilian emergency landings. After the plane was check out, they flew on to Anchorage and then finally to LAX.)
