The possibility that an electronic device cause pilots to lose control of a plane and led to the injury of dozens of passengers is being investigated by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau.

Qantas flight QF72 from Singapore called in a mayday and had to make an emergency landing after the pilots lost control at 37,000 feet. The plane made a series of violent manoeuvres that left 12 people seriously injured and over 30 more in need of medical attention.

“A preliminary review of the data indicates that after the aircraft climbed about 200 feet from its cruising level of 37,000 feet, the aircraft then pitched nose-down and descended about 650 feet in about 20 seconds, before returning to the cruising level,” said the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB).
