Pilot asks passengers to pray after mid-flight scare

MELBOURNE, Australia (WCMH) – For almost two hours, the plane shook non-stop and the pilot asked passengers aboard to pray for their safety.

According to Seven Network, an Air-Asia flight, from Australia to Malaysia, began experiencing engine issues about an hour after takeoff, Sunday.

Passengers said for about two hours, the plane shook like a washing machine.

At one point, the pilot came over the speakers and asked the passengers to pray as he took the plane back to Australia.
