• 2 flight attendants injured during rough flight from Charlotte


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A plane headed from Charlotte to St. Louis hit strong turbulence overnight.

    Airline officials said at least two people on board were hurt on Flight 1667. Emergency crews followed the plane to its gate in St. Louis Tuesday night.

    US Airways officials told Channel 9 two flight attendants were treated on the scene. Officials said the attendants were standing at the time they were hurt. Their injuries were minor, and they were treated when the plane landed. No passengers were hurt, the airline said.

    "The flight attendant, he flew up into the air. He hit his head and shoulder on the ceiling. All the drinks and all the seat cushions and everything like that went flying everywhere," said a passenger.

    The plane, an Airbus 360, can hold 124 passengers.

    The plane was inspected for any problems by maintenance crews Wednesday morning. There was no damage to the plane.
