What If Your Airplane Door Burst Open Mid-Flight?

It's something you think about every time you get on an airline flight. What if the door opens while we're flying? What if something were to affect the structural integrity of the plane? Our paranoid thoughts go to that one plane, you know the one. There was only one fatality because the passengers had their seatbelts on, but a flight attendant got sucked out of the plane at an altitude of seven miles. That's the nightmare, but it's only the worst of the bad things that can happen if your plane pops open.

According to AsapSCIENCE, the good news is that it's not likely to happen. And as usual, they tell us we are safer flying than driving. That's honestly not much comfort, because most of us have experienced our share of auto accidents already. You can't help but wonder if your number will come up while you're too far from the ground to survive.  -via Geeks Are Sexy
