    An All Nippon Airways (ANA) aircraft, carrying 117 passengers and crew, almost rolled upside down as it dived more than 6,000 feet in 30 seconds after a pilot error.

    Hi Crazy, this actually happen awhile ago, and it’s not the first time, nor will it be the last time it happens.

    I think the press has slightly exaggerated the situation, not to say it wasnt serious, but nevertheless exaggerated.

    Hi Craig,

    The incident, as stated, seems to have happened earlier this month. What makes it seem so real for an observor is the fact that you can watch the planes movement in such visual detail.

    Either way, its amazing that the co pilot was opening the cockpit door for the captain and instead set off some crazy movements by hitting the wrong switch.
