Air Canada flight makes emergency landing in Hawaii

MONTREAL – Shocked passengers described being tossed around an Air Canada passenger jet as it hit a pocket of turbulence on its way to Australia on Thursday (July 11) and was forced to make an emergency landing.

Flight AC33 from Vancouver to Sydney hit trouble around two hours beyond Hawaii and diverted back to the US island chain’s capital Honolulu, the company said in a statement.

The Boeing 777-200 landed “normally” at 6.45am (12.45am on Friday, Singapore time), the statement went on, adding that “approximately 35 people appear to have sustained minor injuries.”

Passenger Jess Smith, told the local television station KHON that “we all hit the roof, and everything fell down… people went flying.”
