Passengers on jet in five-minute plunge say crew did not know what to do
By Chris Smyth

Investigators began searching for the cause of a sudden loss of cabin pressure in a Ryanair aircraft as passengers on board the flight said that they thought they would die and accused the cabin crew of not knowing what to do.

The Boeing 737 flight from Bristol to Gerona, Spain, dropped thousands of feet after suffering a “brutal decompression” on Monday night. Sixteen people were taken to hospital complaining of ear pain after the pilot landed the aircraft safely at Limoges airport in central France.

Rapid benefits of dark chocolate
Eating dark chocolate daily for two weeks may lessen the risk of heart disease.

According to research published in the latest Journal of Nutrition, around 6g of dark chocolate a day for a fortnight can reduce blood pressure and the risk of diabetes.

Although the benefits of dark chocolate have been highlighted before, this is believed to be one of the first studies to show it can have such a rapid effect.

Researchers from the University of L’Aquila in Italy and Tufts University of Boston divided a group of patients who had problems with blood pressure and diabetes into two and gave each half white or dark chocolate before swapping.

For a thousand years, they reigned supreme as the \'must-have\' legwear for every fashion-conscious man.
Now - over 500 years after they fell out of favour - tights for men are experiencing a remarkable fashion resurgence.
Some of the world\'s biggest lingerie manufacturers have started making them, and UK stockists claim they are selling out faster than they can re-supply.
The tights, ranging from ultra sheer, eight denier to thick, black ones, are designed to be worn under above-the-knee shorts. This lets the wearer benefit from their warmth
and show off sleeker-looking legs.

Huge hole in terror plunge plane could have been caused by corrosion, spotted in

By Richard Shears and Oliver Koster
Terrified passengers cried and prayed when a hole the size of a van was blasted out of the side of their jumbo jet at 29,000ft.
The plane was forced to drop 19,000ft as the jagged tear - measuring around 20ft x 10ft - led to a sudden decrease in cabin pressure.
The Boeing 747 from London to Melbourne, which had just completed a stopover in Hong Kong, made an emergency landing in the Philippines today. Some of the 346 passengers were sick when they were ushered off the plane and realised for the first time the extent of the damage - and the danger they had faced.
