The cabin crew and passengers on China Southern Airlines flight CZ3693 got a rude shock Wednesday morning when a passenger onboard the flight opened the emergency exit door before takeoff from Chengdu Airport.
According to the offending passenger, he was just trying to "get some fresh air" and had mistaken the door handle as a lever to open the plane's windows, reported Chengdu Commercial News.
A Yamal Airlines Boeing 737-400, registration VP-BKW performing flight YC-145 from Tyumen to Novy Urengoy (Russia) with 148 passengers and 7 crew, had just reached FL330 about 100nm north of Tyumen when the crew received information that a wheel attributed to their aircraft had been found at Tyumen. The crew decided to return to Tyumen for a safe landing about 50 minutes after departure. One of the right hand main wheels was missing from the aircraft.
