Font Size:

A passenger airplane making its journey to Melbourne, Australia flooded while at 30,000 feet.

This Qantas Airbus A380 had to return to Los Angeles after the aisles turned into “rivers,” NBC News reports.

NBC employee Yvette Nicole Brown was aboard the flight and tweeted about the situation, saying that it was “scary.”

The flooding, which started about an hour into the flight, dripped from the ceiling onto passengers. The crew turned off some of the plane’s electrical functions to prevent further complications.

The flight landed safely in Los Angeles an hour and a half after the flooding began.
