خمسون مصاباً جراء تعرض طائرة لمشكلة ”فنية“

By Jordi Bou

March 11, 2024 - تعرض خمسون شخصاً لإصابات مختلفة ونقل 12 منهم إلى المستشفى بعد أن تعرضت طائرة متجهة من أستراليا إلى نيوزيلندا إلى ”حدث فني“ في الجو.

The Boeing 787 flight from Sydney to Auckland, operated by Chilean airline LATAM, experienced a sudden loss of altitude about two hours into the three-hour flight.

People were injured after hitting the roof, with some thrown around the plane.

The cause of the incident could not be ascertained immediately.

U.S. plane-maker Boeing has suffered a series of safety issues in recent years, including fatal Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines crashes of 737 MAX planes.

Shares of the planemaker were down 1.4% in premarket trading on Monday, coming under pressure from a report that U.S. Department of Justice has opened a criminal investigation into 737 MAX mid-air blowout on an Alaska Airlines flight in January.
