File this one under "quite terrifying", methinks. It's been a long while since you've been allowed to smoke on board any Australian flight, but that didn't stop an iPhone 4 that apparently self-combusted on a Regional Express flight late last week. According to Rex's release, on a flight from Lismore to Sydney last week the iPhone "started emitting a significant amount of dense smoke, accompanied by a red glow." Yikes, in other words. Rex runs small Saab 340 planes with not a lot of space — here's the SeatGuru layout for that type of plane — so anything emitting dense smoke would be serious panic fuel. Thankfully it's noted that nobody on the plane was harmed during the incident. Regional Express says that it's handed what's left of the phone to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau for analysis.
