The news that a pilot in China was almost sucked out of a broken windscreen follows the death of a passenger sucked out of a plane window in the US. So how worried should we be?
To lose one passenger through a plane window, as in the tragic case last month of Jennifer Riordan, who died when she was half sucked out of a window on a Southwest Airlines flight from New York to Dallas, is disconcerting. When something similar happens to a pilot, “sucked halfway out” of a broken cockpit window on a passenger flight in China, as it did this week, you start to wonder whether storylines common in airline dramas are becoming a little too frequent in real life.
