Interesting idea... it would also greatly help the TV news folks, who depend heavily on people having died in unnatural fashions for their ratings.

is that likely to be the fuel line to the APU getting ruptured? Or just gin from the cart?

Re: Southwest engine went boom

Never mind the force on your body due to the pressure difference inside vs. outside the plane, once you're stuck in the opening.

9 PSI times... what's the surface area of an airliner window? Say the window is 10" x 12", that's 120 square inches times 9 PSI, that's 1080 lbs. of force.

Re: Southwest engine went boom

Presumably this is not the case on WN (their flights are still general admission, right?) but there would be some massive irony here if the passenger in question had paid extra for a window seat. :roll:

Re: Southwest engine went boom

I wonder how much difference it would make? I'm not being sarcastic, I really do wonder. Unbelted your body gets pulled toward the window, your head probably goes outside the plane, and you get to experience a X00 MPH slipstream, low atmospheric pressure, and below-zero temps. Plus air trying to exi...

Re: Southwest engine went boom

CNN:
Flight information provided by FlightRadar24 showed the plane went from approximately 30,000 feet to 13,000 feet in five minutes.
And... wait for it... pax are describing this 3,400 FPM descent as a "free fall". :roll:

Re: Fumes kills pilot

Yeah I've got no problem with giving the oil all the help it needs to keep the engine happy. Apparently it just needs a little help staying out of the cabin. :?
