listening to the pilot's/air traffic controller convo - "someone went out". She's almost "matter of fact" about it.

The suction would have been only momentary that's why she wasn't fully sucked out

Modern aircraft are pretty fucken amazing though, a few years back something blew a massive whole in the side of a Qantas 747, no one killed or injured, landed safely.

Then you got your third world shithole airlines, that's what you should really be scared of, coz the pilots are often incompetent.

Then you got your psycho German mass murderer pilots too.

Then you got accidental shoot downs. That's scary.

The planes themselves are pretty amazing and safe.

That's why I'll never fly German, African, Indonesian or Russian airlines.
