Have you seen cards on airplanes with instructions for an emergency? There are people with a smile from ear to ear, children happily put on oxygen masks, and adults are touched by what is happening. In fact, it's not like that and it's better not to experience such an experience yourself. However, there are some tips from crash researchers that will help you personally increase your chances of survival in an accident.

When exactly do crashes occur

In general, when something happens to an airplane, it looks like this:

This is the fantasy of the creators of the movie "Fight Club" and planes rarely collide in the air. According to Ben Sherwood, the co—author of the book The Survivors Club - The Secrets and Science That Could Save Your Life, the most dangerous time intervals according to statistics are the first three minutes after takeoff and the last 8 minutes before landing. This rule was called "Plus 3, minus 8". But you do not need to become paranoid, but on the contrary, you do not need to worry during the entire flight if you are afraid to fly. Just don't take off your shoes, be strapped in and keep your eyes open only for these 3 and 8 minutes.

You won't die. 95% guarantee

Also, getting into an airplane accident does not mean that you have already died. After studying 100 plane crashes from 1983 to 2000, the researcher found out that only 5% of the people who got into them died. Considering how rare these accidents are, you have very little chance of dying on the plane...

Where is it better to sit on the plane?

The Discovery Channel carried out the planned crash of a Boeing 727 passenger plane in the desert with dummies stuffed with electronics to register damage. The salon was additionally packed with modern cameras for recording what was happening.

Here are the conclusions that can be drawn from the video:

  • if you put your head on your knees and put your hands on the back of your head, the chance of not breaking your neck increases;
  • suicide bombers are sitting on rows 1 to 7 (greetings to the first and business classes), and seat 7A in this crash was simply thrown out of the plane;
  • putting a child on his lap, as recommended by airlines, is fatal for a child, since mom or dad will not be able to hold him with such a strong blow;
  • if you are sitting in the aisle, there is a high probability that you will die from the particles of the aircraft and luggage that are carried when colliding with the ground;

As a result, you do not need to be afraid to fly in airplanes and you need to clearly understand what is happening — even a slight manipulation of probabilities can seriously increase your chance of survival.
