American Airlines passengers told to brace for landing in scary video

(FOX News) -- Passengers aboard an American Airlines flight from Phoenix to Dallas were told to assume a “brace position” after an issue with a faulty fan forced the aircraft to make an emergency landing on Wednesday.

They were instructed by the crew on how to adopt the “brace position for landing” and told “to remain in that position until the aircraft comes to a complete stop,” as seen in footage shared by passenger Steve Ramsthel.

The flight was operated by Mesa Airlines.

A flight attendant can also be heard telling passengers that in the event of “heavy smoke,” each passenger should “bend over, cover your nose and mouth, and stay low to the ground as you evacuate.”

As the plane rumbles to a stop, the flight crew repeatedly yells for passengers to “brace!” and “keep your heads down!”
