"One hour into the flight there was a big bang then the plane started going down," passenger Marina Scaffidi, 39, from Melbourne, told The Associated Press by phone from Manila airport. "There was wind swirling around the plane and some condensation."Question - If this happened one hour out of London, how did they end up in Manila?

>The flight had made a stop over in Hong Kong.Thanks, I just read that over at CNN, never would have known that from the FOX story.Edit: On the front page of CNN is a passenger video of the ordeal. Seems like everyone was calm and there was no panic. Looked just like any other flight, except they were wearing Oxygen masks. Thank God it worked out ok, and no one was hurt.www.cnn.com

I saw this on CNN this morning. Glad disaster was averted. That hole looked pretty nasty.
