The storm that’s bringing near-record flooding to Boston and heavy rain and snow from the Mid-Atlantic to the Northeast has also been an aviation nightmare. Flights have been canceled and delayed across the U.S. Passengers aboard a Canadair Regional Jet (a CRJ2 for my aviationheads) landing in Dulles probably wished their flight had been canceled, too. Assuming the plane was full, that’s 40-50 puking passengers and one disgusting cabin in need of a deep clean.
Justin Fenton, a crime reporter at the Baltimore Sun first called attention to the nauseating flight report filed to NOAA’s Aviation Weather Center. It notes that moderate to severe turbulence around 7:38 a.m. on Friday morning caused the basically entire cabin to lose its breakfast. Thankfully the cockpit stayed vomit-free and the flight safely landed.
