20 injured as turbulence hits KLM plane headed for Japan

31 May 2007

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines on Thursday confirmed that 20 people were injured when one of its aircraft hit heavy turbulence a few hours after it took off on an overnight flight from Amsterdam to Japan.

Seventeen passengers and three crew were injured when a sudden drop in air pressure over St Petersburg caused the Boeing 777 to drop 50 metres, Bart Koster, a spokesman for the airline said.
