Camila Alves, Matthew McConaughey’s wife had quite the adventure Wednesday.
Camila Alves McConaughey was on the Lufthansa flight that was forced to land in Virginia after it was hit by severe turbulence, sending the Germany-bound flight into a brief free fall.
Alves McConaughey posted a clip from her seat to her 1 million Instagram followers, displaying the chaos on board the plane and sharing her experience following the emergency landing.
“On Flight last night, plane dropped almost 4000 feet, 7 people went to the hospital, Everything was flying everywhere,” she wrote in her post. “To respect the privacy of those around me that’s all I am showing but the plane was a CHAOS And the turbulence keep on coming.”
At least one passenger reported the plane being struck by lightning during the flight.
“People who didn’t have the seat belts fastened got hurt mostly cause it came as surprise without seat belt sign on and lighting hit the plane badly,” the passenger’s spouse tweeted.
Alves McConaughey, 41, confirmed her flight Wednesday was the same one that was forced to land at Dulles International Airport after hitting “severe turbulence” over Tennessee, hospitalizing seven.
“The @lufthansa flight you are seeing on the news today!!!! Yes…that one. Thank God everyone was safe and ok,” she wrote in her caption.
The designer was grateful to the airline for the accommodations they gave her and even said she got to have a drink after the roller-coaster of a flight.

And we made it to the bar with 1 minute before closing…slept well, getting on new flight today, To the journey I continue… Karin Lacy was a savior with me until 1am working on new flights!!!”
