Ever been so scared you changed your career ?

This is pretty amazing, must have had someone watching over them to get the plane down safely!!!!

BAX aircraft flight 705BX encountered severe weather over, Alberta Canada.

The aircraft was cruising at 35,000 feet when it encountered tennis ball sized hail.

The pictures below show some of the damage. All landing lights were destroyed, as was the radar. Amazingly, the engines continued to work.

The crew was forced to make a "blind" emergency landing.

Upon safe return to the ground the first officer and flight engineer quit.

It is expected that the aircraft is a total loss as its structural integrity has been compromised.
