Surviving a plane crash…
Aren’t we all thinking about this after this last weekend?  I know I am since I will soon be taking off for Hawaii.
Here are a few things that have been listed the last couple of days..
And they really make sense.
Get an aisle seat.
Sit as close to an exit as possible. They say sitting within 5 rows of an exit gives you the best odds. Wear your shoes while flying. You never know when you need to quickly evacuate.
The back of the plane is generally the safest but that wasn’t the case this last weekend.
This one may be the most important. Remember the math formula…plus three minus 8.
The first three minutes and the last 8 minutes of the flight are the most dangerous and that’s when you need to be most attentive and aware of what’s happening. I can’t tell you how many times I have fallen asleep before the plane even taxis. I never listen to the safety instructions. But I will on this next flight. That’s for sure.
And this stat is important too. Only 1 in 1.2 million flights end up in accident.
Your odds of dying in a crash are 1 in 14 million. But I know were all thinking the same thing…tell that to the families of the 2 16 year old girls who died on Saturday.
