What should passengers do when they encounter severe convective turbulence on the plane? Impact of s

What about the turbulence of the air flow? For people who often fly, how to deal with the strong convection weather in nature? China Eastern Airlines flight mu774, from Paris, France to Kunming, China, encountered turbulence in the early morning of the 18th, and 26 passengers were injured after preliminary verification. At present, the flight has landed in Kunming safely, and the wounded have been sent to the first people's Hospital of Yunnan Province and Yan'an Hospital of Kunming City for treatment, all of which are not life-threatening.

What is the effect of severe convective weather on airplanes?

Severe convective weather mostly occurs in the cloud system formed by cumulonimbus clouds, with a large or small rainfall range. Sometimes, it rains at sunrise in the East and in the west, sometimes from Hedong to Hexi. When strong convective weather (thunderstorm) appears, it is often accompanied by thunderstorm, gale, tornado, hail and other disastrous weather. It will cause a lot of difficulties to the flight, and even cause the aircraft to lose control, damage, horsepower reduction and other dangerous conditions.

strong electronic current forms lightning stroke, which can damage radome, antenna, windshield and wing, and light will cause body erosion; strong turbulence can cause body structure deformation, of course, passengers in the aircraft will be more dangerous; if in flight, flying into thunderstorm, flying into cumulonimbus cloud or heavy precipitation area, it is easy to cause engine stop, and make wing , rough fuselage surface, increased resistance, reduced favorable angle of attack, reduced lift resistance, increased stall speed, which seriously reduced the aerodynamic performance of the aircraft; if the aircraft enters the thunderstorm area in the process of takeoff and landing, it may encounter low-level wind shear due to the influence of downdraft, the flight opportunity is difficult to control, easy to lose direction, or even stall and fall.


1. The aircraft will bump when encountering the air flow, and will rise or dive rapidly when it is serious. Therefore, it is necessary to buckle up the safety belt to prevent the body from moving at will, resulting in impact injury.

2. After the safety belt is fastened, try to keep calm and do not panic. It is common to encounter airflow when flying. Try to hear the instructions in the loudspeaker.

3. In case of pressure loss of the aircraft, wear the oxygen mask falling from the top of the head as soon as possible. Note: if you want to put a mask on your child, make sure you take it first. Instead, it is safer and more secure for children.
