Turbulence Causes Terrifying Qantas Nosedive Over Ocean

On Sunday night, an Airbus A380 operated by Qantas took a sudden and terrifying nosedive while flying over the Pacific Ocean en route to Melbourne from Los Angeles due to severe wake turbulence from a separate Qantas flight in the air.

“We understand that any sudden turbulence can be a jolt for passengers but aircraft are designed to handle it safely,” said Qantas Fleet Safety Captain Debbie Slade to Business Insider. “As the Captain explained to passengers at the time, this A380 experienced a short burst of wake turbulence from another A380 flying ahead and above it.”
