Flights full of vomiting passengers have been landing in Washington DC as powerful winds buffeted the state today.

Even the pilots were on the verge of throwing up as the planes were hit with heavy turbulence on Friday.

Passenger - My - Nguyen - Washington - Jet

One passenger, My Nguyen, was flying back to Washington on a Jet Blue aircraft when the turbulence hit.

She warned anyone planning to fly into DC today, to 'rebook it for tomorrow.'

Landing - Natl - Passengers - Winds - Plane

'Just experienced the rockiest landing at Natl, passengers were vomiting. Winds were accelerating the plane too fast to touch down, but our amazing pilot Chris on @JetBlue nailed the landing after failed attempt,' she tweeted.

'With that said, I never want to do that again'.

Woman - Attack - Message

The woman next to her was simultaneously throwing up and having a panic attack as she wrote the message.

Nguyen said that the pilot had warned at one point, they may have to reroute to Richmond if they couldn't make the landing.


'So glad to be one of the ones who made it!' she added.

United Airlines flight 3833 was flying from Charlottesville, Virginia, to land at Dulles International Airport at about 7.30am.

A pilot's report revealed that the extremely bumpy ride had all of the plane's 50 or so passengers reaching for their sick bags.

'Very bumpy on descent. Pretty much everyone on the plane threw up,' a pilot said in a report filed with the National Weather Service's aviation center.

'Pilots - Verge - Report

'Pilots were on the verge of throwing up,' the report continued.
