Terrifying moment Qatar Airways passenger jet aborted takeoff and came to a screeching halt on the runway – and shaken passengers watched it all unfold on their in-flight screens:

It was meant to celebrate an aircraft model’s first-ever journey from the US, but this Qatar Airways charter flight carrying journalists and staff didn’t go as planned.

Nerve-wracking footage shows the moment the Airbus A350-900 XWB abandoned its takeoff attempt as it sped along a runway at New York’s JFK Airport and came to a screeching halt.

Passengers were left shaken and confused – and some wanted to get off the plane – as they tried to figure out whether the plane stopped due to an emergency.
