...message to all morons who remove their seatbelt BEFORE the sign is out : here's why it's a stupid idea.

Air France A380 hits another plane at JFK (http://www.rtl.be/infovideo/Video/299980.aspx)
(let the commercial play for 10 seconds, video starts right after that)

same video now on CNN (http://edition.cnn.com/2011/US/04/11/new.york.plane.incident/index.html?hpt=T2)

Not to mention seat belts are great for when your plane suddenly develops a sunroof.

A little basic elementary understanding of Newtonian mechanical physics goes a long way in helping you in life.

I wonder the odds are on some dumb-ass digging into the over-head luggage just as a large bit of 380 fate was realised?


Oh what a moment of smug satisfaction some passengers would have enjoyed if it did.:lol:

Indeed, Aardy, heheheheheheheheheheheh! Heh... :Razz:

Good ole Air France. I just hope it wasn't any of the AF pilots I happen to know drivin' like that.

Mental note too: pay more attention during next safety demo on the plane.

And for the record, I'm an avid seat belt sporter--which is always on unless I'm outta my seat.

I would also add that having it on while driving is a sensible practice as well.

Putting one's face through a windshield really loses it's appeal after the first experience.

Maybe.

That could depend on where you happened to be sitting.

The rule of thumb is you are flying the plane all they up to when you tie it down. You should see what happens when a pilot forgets that point and winds are strong on the ground.

I've seen a plane flipped on it's back while taxing out.





BTW I'm getting an engine rebuild and a new prop on someone else's dime because they forget about the lever that puts down those little black rubber things called wheels.

The last time I flew into Casablanca, half the passengers were up and emptying the overhead baggage holders before any of the wheels touched the tarmac!

The stewardesses were shouting for them to sit down and put on their seat belts, and then the plane had a very rough touch-down. everybody that was not strapped down went flying across the plane, and bags from those opened lockers became dangerous missiles.

I was really pissed at the assholes that acted like assholes, I did not find it funny at all...

I keep my seatbelt on because I have experienced those sudden drops while cruising.

No warning whatsoever. And I am sure that without the belt, it would have put my head up in the overhead rack.
