Three Really Scary Words: Brace For Impact!


There were some very tense moments on board a flight from Phoenix to Dallas Wednesday afternoon.

The flight, which was operated by regional carrier Mesa Airlines, experienced some mechanical problems and made an emergency landing in Dallas. As the plane was approaching the airport, an announcement was made in the cabin to "brace for impact." Flight attendants repeatedly shouted to "brace" and "keep your heads down." Passengers heeded the warning and stayed in a brace position until the plane landed safely without any problems. There were no reports of any injuries. The plane was inspected and later put back in service.  A passenger captured the frightening moments on video.
