Glowed red and emitted smoke

Australian airline Regional Express recently reported that it had to extinguish one passenger’s iPhone after it started glowing red and emitting smoke. Strangely enough, this is exactly what every iPhone fanboy does when you start to question his religion.

Everything happened on flight ZL319 on November 25. No persons were injured although the iQaeda suicide phone is done for. The company said that the martyred phone in question was an iPhone 4.

Haven't you ever heard of Rex? It's a south-east coast airline only (NSW/VIC/TAS) so you must be a Westie (West is best) or a QLDie (which would account for your name :P )

Apple can probably get out of liability by stating the max operating altitude is 10000 feet as shown on their website for the iPhone 4 specs
