This is the moment violent turbulence during a flight from Kosovo to Switzerland sent a stewardess and her drinks trolley crashing into the ceiling.

Video footage from the ALK Airlines flight from Pristina to Basel on Sunday shows scalding drinks spilling over passengers as the stewardess collides with the interior.

A woman can be seen holding her hands together in prayer as searing water from the drinks trolley pours down from her arms. 

Passengers shrieked as the plane was buffeted while the pilot tried to offer reassurance over the intercom.

Seats were torn from the floor, seat belts broke and passengers bled as the aircraft moved vigorously in the air. 

The footage was filmed by Mirjeta Basha who said the turbulence began around 30 minutes after takeoff and lasted for at least five minutes.

She told Minuten: 'People started screaming and crying. A flight attendant slammed her trolley on the ceiling. Cups flew around, some were scalded by hot water.'

Her own husband was rushed to Basel Hospital with burns after they landed at Basel Europort, along with nine other injured passengers.

Mrs Basha told Minuten the cabin crew were highly professional throughout the traumatic experience: 'They told us that we need not be afraid and everything will pass again.'

Although turbulence is terrifying, and the most common cause of injury on aircraft, it is not considered a major safety risk.

Planes are designed to withstand wind pressures they would never see naturally and the chances of wings being damaged in turbulence are extremely minimal.
