Doesn't look like it qualifies as K@kplaas :worms:


I actually feel 100% safer walking around here late at night alone, than walking in a shopping center in Joburg, no kidding.

Re: The pilot of a Gulfstream 150 jet killed during door opening

Maybe GD can make something of this forum? It is in Finnish.

https://www.flightforum.fi/topic/31086- ... nut-turma/

From what I gather the pilot opened the door from the outside and it opened violently onto him. The APU was running at the time. It appears to be a hydraulic actuated door.

The pilot of a Gulfstream 150 jet killed while opening door.

This is really weird. How can someone be killed by the door? Unless maybe if they are on the outside and the plane is pressurised.

Re: DHC-2 Beaver crash into river near Sydney - 6 fatalities

This might have something to do with it...

"It made a tight right-hand turn and as it actually turned around, the wings dipped and it nosedived straight into the water," he said.


When are pilots going to learn about overbanking in cumbersome airplanes?

R.I.P. and condolences
