 Its not the first time! The plane slides are released in the air and fall, hitting the residents on the ground


The incident did not cause any casualties. At that time, the owner of the house was talking with his neighbor outside the house. After hearing the huge movement of the slide falling, he found the slide in his front yard. It was reported that the owner of the house was only a few meters away from the slide.

At first, residents nearby didnt know what it was. They thought it was a huge silver tarpaulin and didnt call the police until they found the Boeing label.

Slides falling in the air are rare.

The slide on the aircraft is installed near each cabin door of the aircraft. In case of emergency, the slide can be fully deployed in a few seconds, so that people on the aircraft can evacuate quickly with the help of it.

But according to the design, the slide can only be opened after the plane lands. If the slide is released in the air, it is likely to rub the parts on the aircraft and threaten the flight safety.

In addition, because the slide cannot withstand the huge air flow, it will also be pulled down after being released in the air.

In fact, the slide is not light, which is likely to hit objects or people on the ground in the process of falling, causing casualties and property losses.

The emergency happened to delta flight 405 from Paris to Boston. It was a Boeing 767-300 aircraft with the aircraft registration number of n1607b and the aircraft age of 19 years.

When the slide falls off, the aircraft is already in the process of approach, so the height is not particularly high. The pilot had reported a lot of noise in the air. After landing, ground maintenance found that the right rear escape slide of the aircraft was missing.

At present, Delta has sent people to remove the slide, while the Federal Aviation Administration also announced that it is investigating the matter.

On the air release slide, the Boeing 767 is also a regular customer.

In 2016, a Boeing 767 of atlas air, a US cargo airline, landed at Tiangang airport in Phoenix, Arizona. It also suffered a slide release in the air.

At that time, the plane was at 2800 feet, and the slide fell on the roof of the local residents home, but fortunately, it did not hit the crowd on the ground.

In fact, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposed to carriers in the United States at the end of 2015 that 767 be repaired safely to avoid the accidental release of emergency escape slides.

The reason for the FAAs order at that time was there have been many reports that the 767 emergency escape slide was released without command.

However, the FAAs order was not urgent at that time, and some airlines had received repair for up to four years. At present, the problem of automatic release of 767 escape slide has not been completely solved.

In 2016, 767 slides were released in the air

For the residents near the airport, the most frightening thing is this kind of falling objects in the air.

From the wrench forgotten by the maintenance personnel, to the aircrafts fairing, landing gear doors, and even the stowaway passengers hidden in the aircraft have fallen from the aircraft taking off or landing. The final places where these falling objects fall are beaches, residential buildings, hospitals, factories and small hospitals, which are crowded places. Compared with property losses, the personal safety of residents is more worrying. According to a report from the international civil aviation organization, at present, the attempt of airlines to solve similar problems is still insufficient. Take Milton in this incident for example, he has encountered more than one similar falling objects in the air incident. Although the plane crash is said to be a small probability event, few people were hit, but not afraid of 10000, just in case, I dont know if the next similar event will happen, can the residents in the place of the incident be so lucky?
