Earth Sense: Turbulence shakes you up but nothing to fear
Placeholder Image
The 2000 movie “Cast Away” has a spectacular scene where the freight aircraft gets into massive turbulence over the Pacific Ocean. Scary bouncing is followed by a crash into the ocean, which leaves the main character (Tom Hanks) stranded on an uninhabited island. Turbulence is something that passengers notice the most when a flight goes through air that doesn’t want to move in a straight line, and at a steady speed.
