Turbulence shakes Madrid - Sofia plateq 2 hurt

Date: 31.12.2005

A Bulgaria Air plane has hit a turbulence field Wednesday night as it flew from Madrid to Sofia

A steward's leg was broken during the shaking, and a woman suffered arm fracture. They received first aid while on board and after the plane landed in Sofia the two were immediately transported to the Military Medical Hospital.

The Boeing 737-500 hit a turbulence field above Italy's Adriatic zone. The passengers were stressed, but the board staff had the situation under control and did not allow panic or chaos, reports said Thursday.

The plane travelling from Madrid to Sofia had 100 passengers on board and landed safely in Sofia after the accident.

The injured steward is still at hospital, local Darik radio said Thursday, disclosing that the other injured person has already been let out.

This appears to be the latest accident with the machines of Bulgaria Air.

A plane of Bulgaria Air suffered a faulty engine at Frankfurt airport, causing serious damages but no casualties on December 23. The problem has been caused by a technology on the ground, making the plane unable to service the flight from Frankfurt to Sofia.

Back in October a plane of the Bulgarian flag carrier made an unexpected stop at Frankfurt's airport due to an engine failure. The plane was flying from Amsterdam to Sofia. There were 13 passengers aboard and they were all transferred to another plane to continue their journey to Bulgaria.
