Aeroplane doors

Imagine this.

Dumb blonde is on a flight, terrified of flying, and is a heavy smoker. Stays in her seat until the plane is at cruising altitude. She gets up, goes over to the door, and tries to open it so she can have a fag without anyone knowing.

You think it's a joke, and a bad one.

Now read THIS LINK.

Definitely deserves a Darwin Award. See THIS LINK if you have never heard of the Darwin Awards.

The woman was arrested when the plane landed in Australia

I should hope so!!!

Can you open an airliner emergency door while the plane is in mid-air?
I saw this post, and was wondering if that could even be done.

This is one of those deals, it can't be done, but we punish if you try. If you are at an altitude where you can open the door, then it is pretty much equalized, not much sucking power either way, just the wind caused by the aircraft moving. The biggest complaint, is there are failures to depressurize the cabin, so they can get out. http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a2_390.html

Sorry, bored, took a day off, so jumping on all active posts Biggrin

only those who will IMAGE(http://miniprofile.xfire.com/bg/co/type/2/sasrand.png)

Just more proof to the case, smoking kills.

In the air the cab is pressurised, a greater amount of pressure is added then their is outside at say 35,000ft. In that case the force exerted outword on the door would be greater than the inward push of the door and just removing the safty latch would blow the door out much like the vacuum that is created when A window is broken.

The sitiuations where cabin's fail to depressurise and people become trapped is when the plane lands retaining Its 35,000ft pressure which comes closer to matching the atmospheric pressure at sea level. This would cause a equal or greater force to be holding the door closed.

Thats just my thoughts from my physics class I could be wrong.

I dont understand your original post Noah.
However also to the pressure change, which incidental is instant; there is the jetstream effect. How does that relate you may ask, simple air travelling at X00 mph past a smooth surface (like an aircraft fuselage),will create a vacuum effect in itself upon the open door therefore greatly effecting the stablity of the aircraft, and also the safety of the other passengers/crew on the aircraft.

yeah I was thinking about it so I did some more research becuase of the doors design and the nature of the pressure I stand corrected, http://www.usatoday.com/travel/columnist/getline/2005-08-08-ask-the-captain_x.htm
