An Airbus 321 passenger jet traveling from Calgary to Toronto had a mid air mishap this week. Thankfully its 118 passengers are safely back on the ground and breathing a sigh of relief after a 4-hour flight without any inflight entertainment.

"It was terrifying," said one anonymous passenger. "About 10 minutes into the flight we were told we would not be able to watch reruns of the Big Bang Theory."

"I thought I could cope by reading the in-flight magazine," said another traumatized passenger, "but it was of no consolation - you could hardly even consider it media."

Peter Oldring spoke with This Is That Special Correspondent Chris Redman to learn how shocked passengers responded and how they will begin the process of putting their lives back together.
