Passengers survive fall from 3500 feet
Was doing an unrelated search on google and this caught my eye: http://www.tsb.gc.ca/en/reports/air/...2/a97q0032.asp
A Cessna 185 with incorrectly installed skis broke up in flight in Canada (back in 1997) and two back-seat passengers survived the fall (one with no injuries).
Gotta tell ya, I read the report and this one boggles the mind !!!
Survivors? INCREDIBLE ... . . . .
put a new meaning on 'spot & stalk'. Ouch!
I have a friend who is a skydiver that experienced a failure called dual bag lock. Basically, neither her primary or reserve parachute opened at all. She fell from 8500'. She broke a ton of bones, and even tore her aorta from her heart, but still lived. Even more amazing, she still skydives.
