Air travel is deemed the safest mode of travel, with 80% recorded survival rates for passengers in distress. This was proven in the recent Titan Airways ‘Mayday’ emergency landing.
Airline passengers are seen praying and singing together after they were made to wear oxygen masks on a chartered commercial flight from London. A video footage is going the rounds on the web today showing Jewish travelers after the Boeing 767 plane they were on lost cabin pressure, which prompted the pilot to make a ‘Mayday’ call and do an emergency landing.
The video footage below shows Jewish men reading their prayer books while one man begins singing and before long he was joined in by other passengers. The passengers on the flight from London are said to be bound for a pilgrimage.
The Titan Airways jet apparently lost cabin pressure and the passengers were made to wear their oxygen mask while the Boeing 767 plane was landed safely at the Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport. The chartered Titan Airways commercial flight left Stansted for a trip to Rzeszow in Poland for what was believed to be a supposed pilgrimage. The passengers were quick to use the emergency oxygen supplies before the plane finally landed safely in Amsterdam.
Reports reveal that many of the passengers on the chartered flight were Jewish and are headed for a religious pilgrimage to Poland when things took a sudden turn. As the plane safely landed in Amsterdam, the Jewish pilgrims were heard reading and singing – ‘Ani Ma’amin,’ which translates to ‘I Believe.’
A spokesperson for the Titan Airways revealed: ‘There were no injuries among the passengers and crew but on arrival the aircraft was met by emergency service personnel as a precaution to ensure the welfare of the passengers. While such events are rare, all Titan Airways crew undergo regular rigorous training in accordance with EU EASA regulations to ensure they manage such situations successfully.’
Mayday call for the chartered Titan Airways was made at approximately 9.43 UTC, and the aircraft safely touchdowned and landed in the Dutch capital at around 10:00 in the morning with all passengers safe and no one reported hurt.
The Titan Air flight was chartered to take Jewish passengers on a pilgrimage to the tombstone of Rabbi Elimelech Weisblum. Year after year, hundreds of Jews organize chartered flights from UK to South East Poland to pray for the peace and happiness of their rabbi.
