An AnadoluJet plane of Turkey aborted take-off after passengers suddenly received images of a plane crash on their smartphones. This included images of a Turkish Airlines plane that crashed in Schiphol in 2009, killing nine people.
A Boeing 737 of AnadoluJet, a subsidiary of Turkish Airlines, was about to take off for take-off at Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport for a flight to Istanbul. The captain of the flight decided to return to the building after anxious passengers warned the crew about the images.
In addition to photos of the 2009 accident, a photo of the 2013 accident in San Francisco was also shown, along with photos from inside the plane carrying passengers.
Israeli media reported that an Israeli youth who was on the plane was arrested. It is said to have sent the photos via AirDrop, an Apple service that allows files to be shared over a short distance with another Apple device, such as an iPhone.
After the necessary checks were carried out, more than 160 passengers were told that they could board the plane again or stay in Israel if they wished. The plane was delayed for five hours.
