PostSubject: Major air tragedy averted, Emirates plane safely lands   Sun Apr 25, 2010 5:38 pm

Kochi, Apr 25 (ANI): A major air disaster was averted on Sunday morning when an Emirates aeroplane flying over Goa hit an air-pocket and landed safely at the Nedumbasserry International Airport in Kochi.

Passengers of the Emirates flight from Dubai to Kochi suffered anxious moments when their aircraft had a free fall of almost 18,500 feet in an air pocket.

An air pocket is a downward air current that causes an aircraft to lose altitude abruptly. It is a localised region of low air density or a descending air current, causing an aircraft to suffer an abrupt decrease in height.
