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.
