A Qantas flight en route to Australia from London made an emergency landing in Manila today after a mysterious bang punched a 9-foot-wide hole in the fuselage and sent the Boeing 747-400 plunging thousands of feet. There were no injuries but some of the 350 passengers and crew vomited, AP reports. Part of the cabin's ceiling also collapsed and the floor gave way, exposing cargo beneath.
"There was a terrific boom, and bits of wood and debris just flew forward and the oxygen masks dropped down," a passenger told Agence France Presse. "It was absolutely terrifying."
