Unexpected turbulence occurred on July 11, 2019 as an Air Cᴀɴᴀᴅᴀ Boeing 777-200 was on its route from Vancouver, Cᴀɴᴀᴅᴀ, to Sydney, Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ. Thirty-seven people were injured, nine of whom had more serious wounds. The aircraft had to make an emergency landing in Honolulu (Hawaii).
The flight was from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport, and it had the flight number AC33 (SYD). There were total 269 passengers and 15 crew members on board at that time.
The pilots decided to alter course and return after seeing “unforecasted and unexpected turbulence around two hours past Hawaii,” according to Air Cᴀɴᴀᴅᴀ (ADH2.) The plane safely landed at Honolulu International Airport (HNL).
One traveler told HawaiiNewsNow that there was a lot of panic because the gas masks fell down and the girl in the seat in front of him smacked the plastic above and actually shattered and ᴅᴇsᴛʀᴏʏed it.
Nine of the thirty people transported to a nearby hospital were treated for various wounds, including skull cuts. All patients received hotel accommodations in addition to evaluations, care, and release from nearby hospitals.
