iPhone combusts and emits smoke onboard REX flight

The Apple iPhone is a smoking hot piece of technology, but one device on a recent Regional Express flight took that a bit too literally.

Rex Flight ZL319 from Lismore to Sydney on Friday last week had an ‘occurrence after landing’ when a passengers’ iPhone started to glow red and emit smoke into the cabin.

A flight attendant onboard quickly acted to recover the situation and extinguish the ‘red glow’ from the phone.

All passengers and crew onboard were unharmed, but it would be interesting to know exactly how much smoke was actually released from the iPhone into the cabin – a scary sight for any passenger.

Rex have issues a press release on the incident – click here.
