Investigation into Hong Kong flight that left 15 Qantas passengers injured

RUMOUR CONFIRMED: An investigation is underway into a mid-air incident that left 15 Qantas passengers injured.

It occurred on a QF29 from Melbourne to Hong Kong last Friday, when the 747 suffered a ‘stick shaker’ warning.

The device causes the aircraft’s control stick to vibrate noisily, to warn of an imminent stall.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau says the incident is serious.

A report will be released once the flight crew has been interviewed.
