A "flight from hell" from China to Canada was diverted after heavy turbulence injured 21 passengers, including three children.  

Emergency Medical Services spokesman Stuart Brideaux said those taken to hospital after the Shanghai to Toronto flight made an unscheduled landing in Calgary were in a stable condition with neck and back injuries.

Fire crews and other emergency services were waiting when the plane landed at around 10.30pm (3.30pm local time) on Wednesday.
Passenger Connie Gelber told the Calgary Herald the journey had been "the flight from hell" and added: "It was frightening. Honestly we didn't know if we were going to live or die."
She said the girl sitting beside her was thrown "right out of her seat down the aisle" when the turbulence hit.
Liu Pinzhou told the paper he was sleeping when the turbulence abruptly woke him up.
He said: "Some guys just flew. It was crazy."
Air Canada said the Boeing 777 - carrying 332 passengers and 19 crew members - landed without incident.
The airline said it would be making arrangements to accommodate the other passengers, including those continuing on to Toronto, and that the incident was being investigated.
There was no immediate indication of what caused the turbulence.

I'm still waiting for the day when we will be anesthetized at the airport and shipped to our destination
only to wake up feeling like we had just been talking to the nurse giving us our happy trip medication.

The airlines could fit more comatose bodies on an airliner with no need for in-flight entertainment,
drinks, food service, complaints, noisy children, and no worries about turbulence complaints.

And I, for one, would be so grateful for not having to endure a 16 hour flight in a tiny, cramped seat
with bad food, screaming babies, smelly passengers, and thrill ride turbulence coming at any moment.

Just start counting backward from 100 and before you know it, you're 1/3 of the way around the world.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
