Dozens Injured By Turbulence On Northwest Flight

What if you were sitting in a chair, reading, and you were suddenly blasted upward and hurled into the ceiling a couple of times?

This happens on airplanes, most recently on a Northwest 747 flying between Manila and Tokyo. Turbulence injured dozens of people — Agence France-Presse says 47 and the Associated Press says 50 — some of them quite seriously.

So, please, wear those seat belts.
