There can’t be many better jobs than that. 

Knew a bloke flew Tornados and F-16s. He said he basically flew from piss up to piss up around the country. He loved every minute.

One dead and multiple injures on a flight from Heathrow to Singapore as a result of turbulence!

That's some bad weather, and questions of weather radar on Boeing aircraft.

Sounds a right mess.

Horrendous this, 6,000ft drop in 3 minutes, 9,000ft drop in 5 minutes in an airliner sounds rough.

I wouldn't be getting on a plane again if I was on that

Had an air pocket drop over the Alps the pilot told us afterwards was 300ft which didnt sound a lot despite people lifting out of seats. In context it’s about three times the biggest drop on Tower of Terrot.

That huge drop was to get to the emergency divert airport quicker rather than the turbulence event itself. So they've been thrown about violently and then had that descent, awful. Think I'd be like @Zico you'd have a hard time getting me back on a plane after that

Surely you don’t turn right on a long haul
