(DFW.CBSLOCAL) — FORT WORTH — Passengers on an American Airlines jet were forced to land in Japan after severe turbulence struck the plane shortly after it took off from Seoul, South Korea.
The airplane was heading toward DFW International Airport, and Dallas attorney Marc Stanley called it his worst flight ever. Stanley took a new plane to get back home, but was able to give a first-hand account of the experience. “I’ve never seen anything like this in my life,” he said. “I fly all the time, usually you can adjust.”

Stanley recorded video of the turbulence on the plane, and it shows serving carts falling down, belongings being tossed around and dishes shattering. “There was this big drop,” Stanley stated, “and food and plates and service materials, my iPhone and everything just started flying all over the place.”
