aircraft decompression :wasted:
BBC NEWS | World | Europe | Dangers of aircraft decompression
I've flown in December, January, March, June, July, and soon to be August. I've survived them all.
Doesn't scare me. It's the safest way to travel.
I just flew to las vegas and back.
I have to say, I use to not have any problems with flying until I went to school and met pilots and aerospace engineers.... Something about a factor of safety of 1.5 when materials loose 2/3s of their strenth over time makes me nervous
I used to fly in alot of helicopters doing remote work. I swear half of the pilots are pot heads.
How do you know if there is a pilot at your party? Don't worry he will tell you.
haha, I'm sure that's true, but it's such an awesome profession, I can see why it's hard for them to keep it to themselves.
I was thinking about becoming a pilot, the college in this town actually teaches it all the way up to flying heavies. I'm thinking I'd become a pilot and get my BS in Electrical Engineering, go to OCS for the CG and use the money I make to pay for my plane trips around the world.
i'm going to Florida in sept, i wont be to worried tho, ill be piss drunk
Now small planes? No fucking way. Seems like those things are crashing all the time. Statistically they are probably safe too, but they just make me nervous.
I saw a Scottish guy get thrown off a plane for being drunk before we took off going from Bombay to London. It was with BA too, so he dumped a good chunk of change on it.
That's the only way to fly.
where in Florida?
