Can We Get Sucked Out of Airplanes? - How explosive decompression works. By Daniel Engber

Can We Get Sucked Out of Airplanes? - How explosive decompression works. By Daniel Engber

The prime minister of New Zealand, Helen Clark, bruised her arm on Wednesday after the door of her six-seat airplane popped open in midflight. Two constables gained control of the door and were able to hold it closed until the plane landed. How'd they do that? Don't people get sucked out of holes in airplanes?


Cool. Considering I average about 50K flying miles a year, aticles like this make me feel so much better about things.
