A DHL cargo plane flying from Paris overshot the runway at Bergamo's Orio Al Serio airport and crashed on a busy road. Oops!
No one knows why this United Airlines flight attendant decided to just deploy the emergency slide and leave but she did and now she's suspended. Apparently most of the passengers on the plane didn't even notice, so her exit was a stealthy one.
Snowstorms in China have delayed thousands of travelers nearing the Chinese New Year. This woman thought her flight was cancelled. All the other passengers were rerouted and caught different flights but ten hours later, the plane still took off with its single passenger.
Hopefully with such an empty cabin they upgraded her to first class.
36 passengers aboard the first ever flight of the Airbus A350 experienced the ride of their lives.
Ok, so maybe it wasn't that intense. But, passengers riding on one of the most luxurious airplanes on the planet saw their lives flash before their eyes when the technologically advanced plane decided it didn't want to take off.
After zooming down the runway at over 100mph, the HAL 9000 of the Airbus A350's deemed the runway too short and the plane skidded its way to a complete stop. Sounds fun!
Passengers aboard the flight from New York to Doha were nursed with plenty of beverages to ease their troubles as the technical difficulties were attended to, and the airplane eventually took off.
Still, the PTSD of that traumatic experience won't be departing anytime soon.
A fiery airplane crash in Ohio that killed all nine passengers on board was captured by one teen who just happened to be on Snapchat at the same time.
Paige McVeigh was in her Akron apartment when she captured and tweeted her reaction to the plane crash, which happened in another part of the complex she lives in.
The teen can be seen hearing a loud noise, looking toward a bright light and yelling "Oh my God!" before the video ends.
WJW reports that the small airplane crashed about two miles away from Akron Fulton International Airport.
All nine people on board, two pilots and seven passengers, died on impact. No one was in the portion of the apartment building that was hit at the time of the crash.
College student Sam Huang would put your mom's coupon clipping to shame.
In a video posted on YouTube, Huang shows how he was able to travel over 50,000 miles and visit 11 cities in First Class for $300.
To put that in perspective, the cost of the flights he took at retail price would be $60,000. And he did it all by some really crazy loopholes on Emirates First Class.
Here is a map of his cheap-o journey.
He flew in the Emirates First Class Suite, which is basically a tiny golden room with anything your heart desires.
What's his secret?
Well, it wasn't really that complicated. He used his frequent flyer miles to purchase a ticket from New York to Melbourne with long layovers in Milan, Dubai, Sydney, Auckland, and Singapore.
This man is a genius.
14 people are injured after a British Airways plane caught fire at Las Vegas McCarran Airport Sept. 9.
The plane was bound for London and the BBC has some details of the early morning scene.
The pilot later told passengers that the accident was the result of a "catastrophic failure of the engine", reports the Guardian's Jacob Steinberg, who was on board the plane.
"We looked out the window and for the first time saw smoke near the wing. We could smell it. It was like burning rubber - bitter and deeply unpleasant - and it was time to panic," Steinberg writes.
These days, of course, you don't have to rely on reporters aboard the stricken plane to get pictures and videos. Leave that to social media.
Those 14 injured peole were only taken to the hospital with minor injuries, so things could have been much worse.
It just goes to show you: Never visit Las Vegas.
