American Airlines flight bound for Dallas, with 184 passengers had to make an emergency landing in San Francisco approximately 45 minutes into the flight due to the walls of the plane coming apart, according to ABC News 7! Scary if you ask me!
Here are some excerpts from passengers onboard, reported by ABC News 7,
“It was terrifying; we didn’t know what was going on. We were all shouting for the flight crew, ‘Come, look, the walls are caving in!” Wilson said. Flight attendants looked at the bucked walls and asked passengers if they could see cracks in the plane.”

That had to be super scary! I wonder why it took the pilot so long to decide to make his emergency landing. What do you think? What would you have done if you were on this flight?
I saw this on the news last night and wrote it up. But, today I noticed that Heels First has an interesting theory on why it took 45 minutes to make an emergency landing.
