I'm guessing either the pilot picked up a nice payday from whoever wanted the guy dead, and the sharks will take care of the bullet hole, or the pilot picked up a nice payday from the guy who was never on the plane at all but wants somebody to think he's dead.

Which is why he did it nice and quiet like, with a Mayday on the radio.

Now that I think about it, it's a good way to fake your own death.

This could be a Carl Hiaasen novel.

The pilot had an identical twin.

Now that you bring it up, that makes more sense than even someone from Florida being so stupid he'd open the door to a plane in flight and fall out. Pilot is a little too calm and mentions the door before the guy, that's a little weird.

I dunno...pilots are pretty calm about stuff like that. Generally you don't  hear them screaming "HOLY MOTHER OF GOD A GUY JUST FELL OUT OF MY PLANE JESUS CHRIST WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!!" even for pilots of small passenger planes. I heard the tape of the guys who got hung up in the high-tension lines outside of some podunk airport and he sounded like it was some minor inconvenience: "Yeah, we're the plane that landed in the wires over by the airport." The dispatcher was the same way "Say again, you said you're IN the wires?"

Not saying you're wrong, just that pilots are all pretty much on tranquilizers. Comes with the job.

As a small plane pilot, I can tell you that you CANNOT just "fall out" of a conventional small plane in flight. The pressure of the wind alone means you'd have to exert a lot of force to get the door open, after which you'd have to unhook your seat belt and squeeze your body thru the opening. Short of somebody wanting to try his hand at wing walking for an episode of Jackass, there's no possible way this is an accident. Now the question becomes, what the hell was the pilot doing while all this was going on?

Double-frick, the stupid video goes on to the next story while you're still trying to read the current story. I would jump out of the plane also (with a parachute).

I'm guessing he was busy ya know, flying the plane? Could have been a suicide too. Didn't some guy just recently kill himself by jumping out of a helicopter?

Eh....

The doors on this plane don't swing open like a car door. One half goes up, the other half drops down. Probably not that difficult to open it in flight, especially at 1,800ft.

I'll add the thought of, if the cabin is pressurized, wouldn't that make it easier to open?

/also, the pilot was wearing a snazzy parachute

Lots of international flights in and around Miami, what makes you assume the plane, passenger or pilot were from Florida?

Personally, I assumed he was from the Phoenix metro area

Depends on which way the door swings and whether or not you are pressurized to a greater degree than the outside world. In most cases, I believe you are never at a pressure lower than the outside air; always equal to or higher.

That being said, they were only at 1,800 ft, so the plane was likely not pressurized at all.

TotalFark.

Everything gets posted to TF, and TF people can post comments.  Some time later, some things get posted to Main, where everyone gets a shot.

TF gets a massive amount of duplicates; sometimes the moderators pick the one with the most comments already to send to Main, sometimes it's the best headline, sometimes it's inexplicable.

From what I understand, he was on approach.  You're generally not chatting it up with your passengers at that time.
