Viral Video Shows Plane Falling 24,000 Feet From the Sky

Hey guys for Complex News, I'm Natasha Martinez//// If you have a fear of flying, you might want to steer clear of this video, or at least steer clear of ever flying AirAsia. The budget airline is under fire yet again after the aircraft plummeted 24,000 feet from 34,000 feet in the air, in less than 10 minutes.  According to NBC News, AirAsia flight QZ535 was traveling from Australia to Bali over the weekend when the jet lost cabin pressure. Terrifying video shows the oxygen masks dropping and crew members shouting in panic.  The plane landed safely back in Perth. AirAsia told CNN in an e-mail that the flight was diverted because of a technical issue.  "We commend our pilots for landing the aircraft safely and complying with standard operating procedure. We are fully committed to the safety of our guests and crew and we will continue to ensure that we adhere to the highest safety standards." Passengers who were aboard the flight criticized the flight crew for allegedly screaming when the plane rapidly descended more that 20,000 feet.  "The panic was escalated because of the behavior of the staff, who were screaming and looked tearful and shocked. We look to them for reassurance and we didn't get any. We were more worried because of how panicked they were." Another passenger noted that the staff went hysterical and that there was no real panic until the staff showed their own. Fortunately none of the passengers were injured during the free fall however this is just one of many bad incidents the airline has been facing. In 2014 162 people were killed when an AirAsia plane crashed, in 2015 wrong data entry caused a near miss between two planes and just 4 months ago, a pilot urged passengers to pray when a flight from Perth to Malaysia experienced an engine failure. AirAsia released a statement saying,  "The safety of passengers and crew is our priority. AirAsia apologizes to passengers for any inconvenience caused.  That's your news for now, for more on this and the rest of today's stories subscribe to Complex on YouTube.
