WATCH: Plane Window falls off at 15,000 feet on Air India flight

Passengers aboard an Air India plane were terrified after one of its windows popped out of its frame while it was at 15,000 feet above sea level.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner had just taken off from Amritsar, a city in the northwestern Indian state of Punjab for a 30-minute hop to Delhi when it instantly hit heavy turbulence resulting in the loosening of the window.
Amazingly though, a viral video of the incident, captured by a steady-handed passenger, showed that all 240 passengers onboard were rather composed.
The 50-second footage opens with a stewardess surreally holding the fugitive window panel, which she then fumblingly replaces in its frame.
She then attends to the window seat passenger – a middle aged woman – and pats the lady’s head, which presumably had been assaulted by the window in its mad dash for freedom. (I salute the flight attendant’s “fierceness” and soldier-like aplomb. I also pay tribute to her chic bob, which magically retains its shape despite the ordeal).
According to the Daily Mail, a probe has been launched by India’s aviation regulator the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and the Aircraft Accident Investigation Board.
With the recent spate of airline incidents around the world, passengers’ confidence in air travel is… going out the window (sorry).
