Air Canada 33 emergency lands in Honolulu due to Turbulence

An Australian band flying from Vancouver to Sydney shared videos of the frightened cabin when their flight had to make an emergency landing in Honolulu, Hawaii on Thursday (July 11).

The Air Canada flight AC33 made the emergency landing at 12:45 pm EST after severe turbulence left 35 passengers with minor injuries.

Flight AC33, carrying 269 passengers and 15 crew, was flying to Sydney, Australia, when the Boeing 777 aircraft “encountered unforecasted and sudden turbulence approximately two hours past Hawaii,” the carrier said.

“As a precaution, medical personnel are on standby to examine passengers in Honolulu,” the carrier said.
