Passengers were in for a tough batch of bumpy air on board a flight headed towards Washington Dulles International Airport on Friday morning,
The weather was so bad at the airport that even the air traffic control tower had to be briefly evacuated. But the situation was even worse 4,000 feet up in the air.
Soon after the Bombardier CRJ200 made it through the turbulence, the pilot sent a report to the Aviation Weather Center, run by the US National Weather Service.
The weather service then relayed the message to its Twitter followers. “Pretty much everyone on the plane threw up” the tweet read.
