30 Injured When Northwest Flight to Tokyo Hits Turbulence

A Northwest 747 carrying more than 400 passengers from Manila to Tokyo hit unexpected turbulence, injuring 30 people on board, 2 seriously.  You’ve probably seen a bunch of stories on the local news after the US Airways accident blabbering on about the dangers of birds and airplanes, and whether the same thing could happen to you – right here in Tulsa! blah blah blah.  The only real danger you face on a plane is from turbulence.  I’ve written about it here before:  people are hurt by unexpected turbulence all the time.  If you keep your seatbelt fastened, you will be fine.  Keep your seatbelt on, and stop worrying about the birds.
