I was filming a rollercoaster horror movie from Hawaii – the screams from the passengers were terrifying and I could hear the plane screeching
THIS is the terrifying moment a passenger captured on video as his flight hit extreme turbulence and others on board screamed in terror.
John Cristitello was flying southwest from Honolulu to Sacramento on Sunday when the plane hit severe turbulence.
He shared a terrible incident with TikTokcaptioned “The free roller coaster is on South-western last night” and hit 1 million views.
The Boeing 737 Max shook violently and appeared to be bouncing up and down as people on board screamed.
During John’s filming, the aircraft could be heard screeching as it flew over the rough terrain.
The video shows one person grabbing a flight safety manual and saying “oh sh***”.
John said: “We came across a few different areas of turbulence. Some of them were normal bumps.
“But several times we encountered bumps and big drops, then the passengers started screaming.
“I tried to stay calm, but when you start hearing the plane screeching and cracking, it’s very scary.”
Viewers of the video were quick to share their thoughts on the stormy experience.
One said: “I hate it when people shout bro, that makes it worse!”
Another said: “Lmfao if I saw this 737 Max card I’d start praying.”
Model 737 Max by Boeing in the past there were two fatal accidents in which 346 people died.
The tragic crashes were due to a software glitch and the model was deemed safe to fly.
One woman suffered a broken pelvis after a British Airways flight falling 200 feet in a bout of turbulence.
There was no warning on board before the chaotic scenes unfolded as the plane lost 25,000 feet of altitude.
A crew member who suffered a fractured pelvis required medical attention.
She has just been able to return to the UK and is receiving support B. bare feet.
The veteran pilot revealed the terrible truth about flying in turbulence: and this is not very good news for nervous pilots.
Pilot Esser Akson said that when there is severe turbulence, the pilots cannot control the plane.
She explained: “It doesn’t mean it’s going to flip upside down or anything, it’s just that we can’t control it at this point, but we’re still flying.
“Obviously it ends at a certain time and then we’re back in control and we need to get or lose altitude or, regardless of the condition of the aircraft, we have to fix it.’
Meanwhile, this pilot jelly is used to explain why turbulence isn’t so scary.
Southwest Airlines did not respond to a request for comment.
