    Passenger opens door midflight

    Passenger opens pane door mid-flight: "A terrifying event" (yahoo.com)

    There's video of it, was over South Korea somewhere, but from the same search the "debunked" myth of being able to open a door midflight

    A passenger cannot open a plane's emergency exit door mid-flight. Here's why (smh.com.au)

    I guess I'll believe Yahoo on this one, mainly because there's cellphone video.

    FYI I dont get notifications anymore for some reason, if I dont respond it's because I didn't know, I have to use the "thanks" I'm still getting and scan a few pages to see if anyone responded but if it's 10-12 pages I dont.

    If he survived , I would ( knock out 11 teeth ) ( fracture 4 fingers and a wrist ) ( hyperextend one knee ) and put my foot on his neck until plane landed

    Apparently the incident on the South Korea flight happened a couple of minutes before landing so they would have been low enough that the pressure differential wouldn't be as significant, allowing the door to be opened. It still wouldn't be possible mid-flight.

    You can't take an engine off a wing in mid flight either...

    Unless, you're a flock of geese.

    Nothing is fool proof.

    The headline is BULLSHIT. It wasn't mid-flight. It was at a 700 foot altitude approx 3 minutes before landing.

    It was a "news" blurb on my local "news", I saw the video then searched the web and found the link, that's how it was reported on air and as a headline so I appreciate the investigative journalism on your part, I'm too lazy for that and since our "news" has descended to somewhere between Babylon Bee and National Enquierer I figure it all comes with a disclaimer hidden somewhere in their fast scroll of credits at the end of the program.
    FYI I dont get notifications anymore for some reason, if I dont respond it's because I didn't know, I have to use the "thanks" I'm still getting and scan a few pages to see if anyone responded but if it's 10-12 pages I dont.

    The change in air pressure has nothing to do with the altitude... which is low. It has to do with the high velocity air flow past the open door, which will reduce the air pressure inside the place.

    Never flown commercially before, so help me out here... given today's world, why is it EVEN POSSIBLE to open the damn door until the aircraft ROLLS TO A STOP???
