Skywest E175 at Denver turbulence injures flight attendant
« on: December 14, 2022, 06:13:46 AM »
Story from AVH.

Listening to Denver Center/approach, everyone was commenting on the turbulence.
Skywest had severe turbulence, safely landed.  Couldn't grab the ground audio from Denver
when they got to the gate. 

A Skywest Embraer ERJ-175 on behalf of United, registration N151SY performing flight UA-5270 from Boise,ID to Denver,CO (USA), was descending through about 15,000 feet when the aircraft encountered severe turbulence causing injuries to a flight attendant. The aircraft continued for a safe landing on Denver's runway 16L about 12 minutes later.

The FAA reported: "AIRCRAFT ENCOUNTERED SEVERE TURBULENCE INJURYING A FLIGHT ATTENDANT, DENVER, CO." and rated the injury minor.
