Does Sky News Australia have nothing better to report on besides that near stall event on QF29? It's been on a non-stop loop all morning. *scratches head* Is this really a big deal?

A near stall event is an impending stall, stall recovery procedure was implemented, those without seat belts on and the endless baby walkers on a cabin stroll would have been the casualties. I guess it's new worthy news, especially seeing it was on a Qantas aircraft...

NZ also pulled up this story and a commentator indicated that a "Stick shake" event is indeed very serious.. I guess they could have turned the story around as a positive to focus on the pilots who righted a very serious situation.

Yes, Stick Shake is very serious. They interviewed some girl on the flight who said passengers were told it was due to a plane flying overhead in close proximity, not sure on that score. I just loved the picture on Nine MSN this morning, the '747' only had two engines....
