Two pilots’ mid-air dive got them suspended from Jet Airways Thursday. The incident happened last Friday on a flight from Mumbai to Brussels.
According to India’s civil aviation regulator, the Jet Airways plane dived 5,000 feet, forcing air traffic controllers to issue an emergency warning. Yahoo! News reports that the captain was on a scheduled rest break when the plane went into a mid-air dive over Turkey.
The dive put the aircraft, a Boeing 777-300 Extended Range, into an altitude assigned to another aircraft. Air traffic controllers in Ankara issued an emergency warning to the co-pilot on duty, who allegedly didn’t notice the altitude change because she was using her tablet computer at the time.to read more: inquisitr.com
