A Poland bound flight from London Stansted turned into a flying prayer hall when the Boeing 767 aircraft had to make an emergency landing in Amsterdam.
The flight with several Jewish passengers on board lost pressure in the cabin and passengers had to wear oxygen masks when the plane touched down at Schipol Airport. The dramatic incident frightened passengers who prayed together.They were heading towards Rzeszow in Poland, where they have planned a pilgrimage.
A video, purportedly of the scenes inside the flight captures the men reading from their prayer books and singing Ani Ma’amin, which translates as ‘I believe’.
In the prayer, the thirteen Jewish principles of faith are read out and can be sung along with the music. Most sat looking forward, breathing into their oxygen masks while others sat around and talked to each other. Others took pictures and videos on their phones, documenting the incident, the Daily Mail reported.
The Titan Airways flight made a mayday call at 9.43 UTC and landed in Amsterdam at 10.
