Alaska Airlines Flight Makes Emergency Landing After The Whole A*s Door Falls Off Midflight

Alaska Airlines

If you’re afraid of flying, just stop reading this now.

An Alaska Airlines flight made an emergency landing tonight after part of the plane flew the f*ck off DURING THE FLIGHT.

Flight 1282, which was scheduled to fly from Portland, Oregon to Ontario, California suffered a rapid depressurization after a door of the plane fell off during flight, causing the plane to have to return to Portland for an emergency landing.

Video posted online shows the terrifying moments when the plane was returning to Portland with a giant hole in the side.

It was reported by other passengers on the flight that the seat beside the missing piece of the plane was sucked out, but that it was unoccupied.

A statement from Alaska Airlines indicates that all passengers and crew onboard are safe:

“AS1282 from Portland to Ontario, CA experienced an incident this evening soon after departure. The aircraft landed safely back at Portland International Airport with 171 guests and 6 crew members. We are investigating what happened and will share more as it becomes available.”

The door on the plane that was blown out is reportedly not one that’s in use as an emergency exit door, and was sealed shut by the manufacturer when the airline received the plane.

It’s also being reported that the plane, a Boeing 737MAX, was just delivered to Alaska Airlines this past October.

Photos from PDX show the plane back at the airport and the clearly-missing door from the outside.

Boeing, which has been in hot water before over issues with their 737MAX aircraft, issued a statement that basically just said “we’re looking into it.”

Absolute nightmare, but thank God everybody’s ok.
