ALERT CENTER: Plane's wing breaks off during extreme turbulence
Travelers lived some scary moments after part of a plane's wing broke off during extreme turbulence.
The Federal Aviation Administration says it happened Thursday on an American Airlines jet headed from Charleston to Dallas-Fort Worth.

A passenger says most of the flight was smooth, the turbulence only lasted about two seconds, but was rough.
From Alabama, passengers went on to Texas on a different flight and everyone is safe.
