Plane problems in Japan - level 2

Japanese airline bosses are very sorry after a terrible plane mistake. Their plane turned 140° and went down about 2 kilometres when the co-pilot pressed the wrong button.

The incident happened on September 6th but people were informed only on Wednesday last week.

The bosses say that it is true and they are deeply sorry for little information about the incident.

Two flight attendants were injured but strong gravitation from the turn kept passengers safely in their seats.
