One Dead After Boeing 777 Hit By ‘Severe Turbulence’ On London-Singapore Flight

A Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-300ER was hit by ‘severe turbulence’ on a London to Singapore flight on Tuesday, forcing an emergency diversion to Bangkok. Tragically, one passenger has been confirmed dead. This incident raises fresh concerns about the safety of air travel of Boeing jets amid a series of mid-air mishaps.

Aviation sleuths on X are citing website flight tracking data from Flightradar24, which shows that Flight SQ 321 abruptly dropped 6,000 feet ‘due to an air pocket’, but nothing has been confirmed. 

Here are images inside the plane moments after the incident. 

The plane has since landed and emergency crews were dispatched to rush the injured to local area hospitals. 

“We can confirm that there are injuries and one fatality on board the Boeing 777-300ER,” Singapore Airlines wrote in a statement published on Facebook, adding there were a total of 211 passengers and 18 crew on board. 

“Singapore Airlines flight #SQ321, operating from London (Heathrow) to Singapore on 20 May 2024, encountered severe turbulence en-route. The aircraft diverted to Bangkok and landed at 1545hrs local time on 21 May 2024,” the airlines added.
