Unsuspectingly, an ANA flight turns 130 degrees to the left ... and perhaps this is a good reason to wear your seat belt at all times...

According to the WSJ, a "co-pilot hit the wrong button while trying to open the cockpit door for the plane’s captain, returning from the restroom" and the All Nippon Airways Co. (ANA) airplane " tipped more than 130 degrees to the left at one point and dived about 1,900 meters in 30 seconds during a flight from Naha on the southern island of Okinawa to Tokyo." Woo wee... I feel sorry for those passengers who were not buckled in, but now it makes sense when you hear the pilot on any airplane flight suggest that you should have your seat-belt on at all times.
