Another Boeing Incident Sees Twelve Passengers Injured in Mid-Air Emergency

Twelve people were injured when a Qatar Airways plane flying from Doha to Dublin ran into turbulence, leaving eight passengers hospitalized, adding to the long list of recent Boeing incidents.

Flight QR017, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, landed shortly before 1 p.m. Dublin time (8 a.m. EDT), Dublin Airport said in a statement.

The plane was by emergency services, including airport police and the fire and rescue department, “due to six passengers and six crew … reporting injuries after the aircraft experienced turbulence while airborne over Turkey.”

Eight passengers were taken to hospital.

Watch

Qatar Airways said in a statement: “A small number of passengers and crew sustained minor injuries in flight and are now receiving medical attention.”

It said, “the matter is now subject to an internal investigation.”

The news comes just days after a British man died and dozens of people were injured when a Singapore Airlines flight from London also ran into turbulence.

The incident comes amid the growing controversy around Boeing, following whistleblowers from the company raising safety concerns.

As we reported last month, John Barnett, the first whistleblower, who was a former Boeing quality control manager, was found dead after committing “suicide” in March.

Before his death, Barnett took depositions, alleging Boeing retaliated against him for raising concerns about quality lapses.

Barnett was found in his truck with a “self-inflicted” gunshot wound to the head.

Despite a suicide note was reportedly found, Barnett’s lawyers are questioning whether he took his own life.

“John was in the midst of a deposition in his whistleblower case, which finally was nearing the end,” Barnett’s lawyers said.

“He was in very good spirits and really looking forward to putting this phase of his life behind him and moving on.”
