All of her. The passengers around her grabbed her and pulled her back.


Your only defense: be too fat to fit through the window?


Wasn’t enough for Auric Goldfinger!

Poor woman! Her guardian angel(s) deserve a promotion to Archangel status.

The last time I flew, lightning hit the engine on my side of the jet. The stewardess jumped and landed in my lap with her arms around my neck. It was the angels that did this.


I guess the pilot said it was a charge from the front cone of the plane that jumped off and hit the engine. Either way, I do not care, she was a cute stewardess.

I haven't flown since, I can't top that experience.

We had a KC-135 have to fly most of the way across the Atlantic with the navigators body hanging from the cockpit ceiling. He was doing a sextant shot and a window maybe half the size of that one blew out. It pulled his head and at least one shoulder through it.

There is just no escaping fate...You will live and die when it is your time.

Seems like this only happened in the movies until now.

They're all caused my blade failures. The blade gets thrown into the side of the engine causing damage that the airflow around the engine then grabs onto that damage and rips it apart.

There's a blade durability problem with the Rolls Trent 1000 that's hammering the 787-9, but I haven't heard of anything with the CFM56.

Wasn't there also the story of a BA pilot/co pilot/engineer (can't remember which) that was sucked out of the cockpit window when it failed. Think the plane landed with the guy still out the window only part of his body in the cockpit were his legs.

He was held in place by the Purser while the FO landed the plane. I believe the FO never flew again.

Scary is seeing a spider on your car.

This lady almost died and was probably utterly terrified hanging outside the aircraft at 30K feet doing over 500 hundred miles per hour. With people in the airplane holding on to her for dear life.

I guess there's scary and then there's OMG WE ARE GOING TO DIE scary.

Everyone is forgetting the most important part, the plane landed and everyone lived!

How amazing is that!

not quite the same...

i remember several hundred people being killed last year from plane crashes

i do not know why they do not include deaths when counting deaths.. i suppose russians do not count to usaians

maybe i am wrong and nobody died from crashes last year but it just does not sound right

Nobody Died In Commercial Jet Crashes In 2017: Good News, But Not ...
www.forbes.com...
Jan 3, 2018 - The excellent report on 2017 commercial air crashes is somewhat manipulated. In actuality, at least 64 people died in commercial airline crashes last year. It's just that they died in: Crashes of smaller “commuter” planes deemed not to be “jets” because their turboprop engines (which are a type of jet) have ...


never the less it is very surprising news for the big planes

The main part of this flight talking to approach is at about 13-14 minutes in.

If I remember rightly it was because they put the wrong size screws back in during maintenance on that one.

So it was true a woman was partially sucked out jeez i bet that was scary as f
