Air Niugini Crashes into Sea

  • After the pilot of the Boeing 737 aircraft made a mistake while landing, the whole plane crashed into the sea in Micronesia. It was having 47 people on board. Air Niugini Flight 72 was scheduled to land at the international airport of main island Weno of Chuuk state. One of the passengers, Bill Jaynes, has shared his experience on Facebook through a video: "It's just surreal. I thought we landed hard until I looked over and saw a hole in the side of the plane and water was coming in, and I thought, well, this is not, like the way it's supposed to happen.” All passengers were able to evacuate the plane safely.
