Crashing into an Ocean on a Plane  How to Save Yourself from Dying?The Mythbusters set out to prove if the special brace position while on a plane was a good position to protect yourself. Well, yes, it is, but which was the safest place on the plane, and what is the best position you could be in? #2 20060807 05:29:34
Re: Crashing into an Ocean on a Plane  How to Save Yourself from Dying?Be careful with that word, "Proved". Mythbusters has given some evidence that such is true, but they have proved nothing. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #3 20060807 07:47:05
Re: Crashing into an Ocean on a Plane  How to Save Yourself from Dying?There is footage of a plane landing on water. The plane was hijacked in Africa and ordered to fly to Australia by some idiots who wouldn't believe the pilots when they said it couldn't get there on 5 hours of fuel. So the pilots did the best they could  aimed for an island. The plane ran out of fuel and the pilots attempted to land it near a beach. It actually looked to be going well, then a wing/jet touched the water and the plane broke apart. This was captured on film by someone on the beach. Tourists swam out, took boats etc, but only about 1/3rd of the passengers survived. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M.
