Evacuating from a plane

Aircraft evacuation
Let’s hope its not this funny

Last thing you want to hear when you are flying. “Brace! Brace!”.

What do you do when the plane you are traveling on has to be evacuated? Do you bolt up and make for the exit or will you start pulling out your luggage from the overhead compartments.

Well, the folks on EK521 apparently did in a recent incident recounted by an article in the Huffington post. The video has gone so viral it’s not something that needs to be linked to anymore.

In the middle of a plane with smoke filled air, the passengers were scrambling to bring their luggage with them as they made their way to the emergency exits. It was such a miracle that no one was hurt in the melee.

We can understand.

Usually, Suan packs only the most ‘important’ and ‘precious’ of cargo from her journeys in the carry-on luggage. So it would not be a surprise to us that many on that flight had the same. How could you leave your most precious behind? After all that effort to meticulously squeeze them in, using up each available cubic inch?

So believe it or not, this can be the real behaviour of people and its apparently not unique for this incident alone. Scour the net for more stories here and here. Some day, we’re really gonna get a nasty one.

  1. I had thought about this a few times and decided that it would be very difficult to leave behind my most important so I just pray really hard and believe that nothing will happen… ☺ If something happens… I guess I hope that I won’t leave anything except my soul. 💖
