A China Airlines flight from Taipei to Bali on Saturday September 20, 2009, encountered clear-air turbulence 1.5 hours before its scheduled landing in Bali resulting in serious injuries to several passengers and crews. China Airlines Flight 687 (CI-687) was reportedly flying at 35,000 feet over the air space of the Southern Philippines when the Boeing 747, carrying 339 passengers and 19 crew, suddenly loss 10,000 feet of altitude before stabilizing at 25,000 feet.

As the result of the incident 30 passengers and crew suffered injuries ranging from minor cuts and abrasions to severe head injuries and multiple bone fractures.

Emergency crews in Bali were advised by Captain Rong Fa Liang of the injuries on board allowing ambulance and medical crews to be on stand by when the aircraft landed at 2:20 p.m. after which the injured people were transported to Denpasar's Sanglah General Hospital for medical treatment. 8 of the injured were warded at the Hospital on Saturday. 3 days after the incident, on Monday morning September 22nd, 3 passengers remained hospitalized.

Incorrect Reports from Australia Media

Both Radio Australia and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) incorrectly reported that the injuries to passenger and crew were the result of a hard landing while landing in Bali. The inaccuracy of these reports was underlined by reports from a number of media on hand at Bali's airport when CI 687 landed who reported a smooth and normal landing.

No Damage to Aircraft

After undergoing a safety inspection of the aircraft and its systems the China Airlines returned to the air 2 hours after landing at 4:00 p.m. on its scheduled return flight to Taiwan.
