There was severe turbulence on a flight from Texas to Germany. Also on board: Camila Alves, wife of Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey, who then published frightening scenes on Instagram.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) told “NBC News” there was “considerable turbulence” on a Lufthansa flight on Wednesday, March 1, 2023, from Austin/Texas to Frankfurt/Germany. There were injuries, seven people were hospitalized. Among the passengers: Camila Alves, 41, wife of Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey, 53. She has now published shocking scenes of the flight on Instagram.

On the floor of the Airbus A330-300, food, crockery and textiles that were previously thrown through the air are scattered. On the disturbing video, which Camila Alves filmed herself and then uploaded to her Instagram account, she wrote: “On the flight last night I was told that the plane fell almost 4000 feet, 7 people were hospitalized and everything flew everywhere. […] The plane was a CHAOS and the turbulence kept coming. The @lufthansa flight you see on the news today!!!! Yes… he.” Fortunately, everything was “safe and ok”, explains the model with relief.

The flight had to be diverted due to the turbulence and landed at Dulles International Airport in a Washington suburb, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority told NBC News. There, in a hotel, McConaughey’s wife then spent the night. On Instagram, she thanked the hotel chain and Karin Lacy, who helped her organize a replacement flight.

Was Matthew McConaughey also on board?

According to Lufthansa, brief but severe turbulence occurred about 90 minutes after flight 469 took off, reports the US television station “NBC News”. According to the FAA, the plane was at an altitude of about 37,000 feet over Tennessee. During one of these crashes, a flight attendant hit the ceiling “and fell down, lying completely horizontal,” says one passenger.

Matthew McConaughey is said to have been on board as well. However, his wife didn’t mention the actor in her post. One thing is certain: Despite the violent turbulence, there were no serious injuries. The FAA will now review the case, the statement said to NBC News.
