I know all movies with airplanes are not realistic to us pilots but geez. SST takes a missle and explosively decompresses at 60,000 ft. Everybody can still breathe and panic and talk for like 3-5 minutes. Then they all finally pass out and the captain dies. They would have all passed out in seconds. All would have been dead in minutes. It just annoys me.

I was just about to post this topic...It's called "Mayday."

My favorite is how the military was going to shoot it down to cover their mistake, and then how the airline was thinking about crashing it due to the insurance payouts and how it may ruin the airline.

I like how most pax passed out...but several didn't...even the one in the lav who wasn't wearing O2.

I will admit though, watching superman is mildly entertaining.

I like how they can type on the FMS (datalink) with two hands...it also sounds like a normal keyboard.
Sigh...watching an aviation movie with pilots just ruins it.

60k, milliseconds

TUC at 600 is about 9 seconds.
They tell you about the noise, the cold, the fog, the disorientation.
What they fail to tell you about it the agonizing abdominal and sinus/middle ear pain.

I missed that part in the movie so Im not sure if it was explained, but In the book the story goes that the lav is sealed so the air stays in there.

I was watching a program on SWAT teams on MSNBC, upon reading this post, I switched to the airline movie and saw a guy being sucked down a flight of stairs, down the aisle in the cabin, and finally after about 2 minutes worth of a journey, out through the hole in the side of the airplane....I think I'll go back to the SWAT team documentary.....

Hey it wasn't that bad. The crew of the 940 knot super airline included a Navigator (At least until he got sucked out the hole in the side of airplane)! All I want to know is what's the pay and QOL and I'm so there.

And I really liked the part where the Navy O-5 was bossing the Admiral around.

Well that goes without saying, all lavs are air-tight. :D But the problem is that the lav door kept opening and closing so the guy in there could see what was happening.

Why is it that the only black guy on board had to die?! :(


Also, when the captain and fo went to put their O2 on, I like how their masks were sucked out of their hands and just disappeared never to be seen again.
