Is turbulence getting worse?

In the last week, there have been two major incidents of turbulence hitting commercial flights, causing injury. On Sunday, 12 were injured on a Qatar Airways Doha to Dublin flight while in the air over Türkiye. In today’s podcast, we talk to Professor Dr Jason Middleton, the Head of UNSW’s Department of Aviation between 1995 and 2017, about why we’re seeing a sudden spike in incidents of turbulence, and why you should always wear a seatbelt.

Hosts: Zara Seidler and Sam Koslowski
