A Airplane Unity Fiumicino Returned to Newark Airport (New York) due to cabin pressurization problem after descent from altitude «Over eight thousand meters in ten minutes». Flight 510 took off at 8.37 pm on Wednesday with 270 passengers and 14 crew members on board. A spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration said the Boeing 777 returned to Newark shortly after midnight. The passengers then took another flight to Fiumicino. The jet was at 11 thousand meters, so when the pilots almost reached the cruising altitude, the pilots decided to descend due to a problem with the pressurization system, at that altitude, the passengers and attendants could not breathe. With the help of auxiliary masks. However, below 4 thousand meters, you can breathe even without using systems that mix oxygen and atmospheric air.

After an unusual loss of altitude for the passengers, the aircraft made two rounds at a constant altitude of about 3,000 meters over Nova Scotia, Canada. It was around 10.30 pm. Later, he returned to the airport of departure, where he landed without any problems.
