I found this video after watching video of the CSeries first flight today. It talks about the egress/bailout training the crews have to go through before they can fly. Including FAA and Canadian certification people. It also shows a little of the egress equipment on board.

Great Vid Zaphod! I am however confused!

The emergency doors were fine! The hatch above the cockpit was weird. I would have thought the wind factor would have made that escape route difficult not to mention a possible meeting with the tail section.

But what on earth was the funny seat they were all sitting in. Looked like something out of the Thunderbirds???

That would be for use on the ground, after landing.

Thanks, I though that may be the case but still one hell of a jump to the ground. Still, I suppose we are talking the military as opposed to someones grandma!

Just out of curiosity, what would they carry in those tanks in the video? There were several round ones and others along the sides of the plane .

That piece that dropped down, flush with the floor, falls out of the aircraft in flight. It leaves a nice opening that they then drop through, if they have to bail out.

"These tanks are filled with water and engineers can transfer water between the tanks during flight to shift the weight of simulated cargo or passengers. The center of gravity, or CG as pilots call it, is important to the flight characteristics of any airplane. During flight test, Boeing must ensure the plane is safe and efficient at full forward and full aft CG as well as any combination between the two."

Neat! Thanks.

The tanks hold the chemtrail chemicals of course - just wait for the chemmies to get hold of this one......

According to the Montreal Gazette the egress system


.....allows the crew to bail out by rushing to the aircraft's mid-section and take turns sitting on a metal contraption that would then catapult the parachute-equipped members out of the bottom of the aircraft. The manoeuvre, however, could only work above a certain altitude.


Can't quite see how that works from the video - perhaps they fall out backwards & it resets somehow??
