my dad was a pilot, and i am one as well.  the first thing he taught us was you sit down in the plane, the first thing you do is put your seatbelt on. you leave it on until you are back on the ground and the engine stops.

i still do this on commercial flights--although i do put it on after all the people in the row are there.

hate to say it, but both of those people were a couple of idiots.

Wow, this is exactly what happened to me when I was thrown out of a Zodiac in an uncontrolled dive and died!

Small world.

Federal aviation regulations require pilots to wear their seat belt all the time, so why did these two idiots take their belts off? Ignore rules based in safety and sooner or later you get what you deserve.

FAR 91.105(a) says that each required flight crewmember must keep his or her seat belt fastened during takeoff and landing, and while en route.

Bingo

Tenga: Summa cum loudly: Whoaahhhh....the previous owner died in a crash of the plane as well? That farker is haunted!

Same owner, different plane.


Wrong.  From TFA:  "WRCB said the plane had been owned by a man killed in a December crash and then was sold to the current owner, described as an experienced pilot who wanted more training in the Zodiac."

LoneVVolf: TanSau:
2. at 2500 feet, he had about 25 seconds to think about his error. That's a farking eternity.

I dunno; it'd still be a challenge to rub one out before impact.


Challenge accepted

Maybe they were trying to join a certain altitude-based aviation club?

That might also explain the canopy suddenly snapping open despite the airflow.

According to this calculator*, he was only falling for 12.78 seconds.  That's the good news.

The bad news is that he hit the ground with a force of 627,200 joules, which is enough energy to reduce Kim Kardashian's ass measurement by a full three inches.

No, wait, that site I cited cites frictionless terminal velocity.

Maybe it was 25 seconds after all.

/sure hope not

12.78 seconds, I don't think I could rub one out that quick.

Norad: This far in and no Airplane 2 references. Fark ain't what it used to be...


I was thinking the same thing.
