Plane dropped several thousand metres because the co-pilot was vaping

The China Airlines airplane dropped several thousand metres because the co-pilot was vaping an   e-cigarette.  The co-pilot of China Airlines had certainly tought something like this :” it is a nice day to fly and lets vape now the captain does’nt see me”.  When the sensors of the plane tought they detected a fire in the cabin the plane automatically descended that is how a Boeing 747 works.

Flight delayed in Florida because a alligator came on the runway

The fact that a alligator came on the runway is’nt just unpleasant because of the delays, but it makes in the worst case the airplane crash. The main reasons why there could come an alligator on the runway is that first of all : it is Florida, Florida is famous because of the large number alligators live there. The second reason is : that the airport  consists of  110 hectares water surface. So there are many alligators hidden there. They could prevent comparable incidents by placing fences around the water.

Transavia passengers missed deserved flight

Transavia passengers missed  a  flight; “my kids were crying”, but why did this happen? The answer to this incident is’nt quite difficult;  he had smoked in the plane and had’nt listened to the requests of the  crew to stop, at least that was wat everybody thought.  The thruth is that they had confused someone  with him and did’nt say it to him.  He does’nt even smoke so that can’t be the case. I think it is  strange  that the Transavia’s staff members did’nt say anything. I am quite sure that if they had said it to him this would be solved before the departure. I also think that they have to be more accurate because if two people look similar to each other it definetly does’nt mean that they are the same.

Woman is sucked out of the plane

The window which the woman was sucked out.

A  woman was sucked out of a Boeing 747 because the exploded engine parts did hit the window of that person which broke. To maintain the pressure of inside the plane and outside the plane you need to close the doors, but if you open the door in mid-air it will suck everything from inside the plane to the outside. Without  a  window it’s the same. The force that sucks objects depends on the altitude. If you are at  a low altitude the suck-force  is smaller than when you are on a high altitude.

I think this could be prevented because a long time ago nearly the same thing happened, near Hawai the roof of a plane was blown away. In that Hawai case there was also someone sucked out and killed.

Actions you can take to prevent that someone is sucked out of the window are not quite difficult, here are some examples: the most simple option is to make the airplane windows stronger that it becomes “engine explosion proof” or you can assemble a metal net that  catches people and prevents that they are sucked out.

The only positive thing  about this accident is that it proves that plane windows can brake although everybody thinks they are indestructible.

Military plane crashes : 9 killed

A  Puerto Rico Air National Guard cargo plane model Hercules WC-130 crashed on Wendnesday the second of May near Savannah, Georgia, scattering fiery debris over a highway and railroad tracks, and killing all nine people aboard. There are rumors that the high age of the plane (50) was the cause, but the thruth is that it is unknown for now.  If I look at the dive,  I’m thinking it happened deliberately.
