On 10th March there was a major emergency on a Turkish Airlines flight arriving in New York. 29 people were treated after Turkish Airlines flight #TK1 to New York (JFK) declared an emergency following severe turbulence.
A huge number of emergency vehicles arrived on the scene around the time of the landing as passengers were expected to be in quite a bad way as can be seen on the tweet below.
With the tragedy of Ethiopian Airlines, this story was largely ignored, but it does serve as a reminder to keep your seat-belt buckled. This video shows just how bad things got on one Delta flight.
