I like prawns, and lobster and crab, but they don't like me. My tongue comes out in big lumps when I eat them.
Not so keen on fish, but I nicked a bit of swmbos cod the other week and that resulted in a big bruise on the outside of my cheek.  ::)
That'll learn ye...  ;D

Physics 101...

If something falls off the side of an item moving forwards at 5-600 miles per hour, then it's extremely unlikely to strike forward of where it came from ::)


Very unlucky. I cannot imagine the horror of it for the woman and those seated nearby.

Just as well we don't know how we are going to die.

Out of interest where is the safest place to be on a plane if you have to travel? I always try for near the front. partly as it is less noisy and partly down to having better air than at the rear .

At the back because you never hear of a aircraft reversing into a mountain  ;D
I guess the back row would give you a hundred feet or so of warning that you're about to die... If you like that sort of thing ;D

In the cockpit.
On your own.
With the engine left on the ground (or let someone else fly with it 50m ahead).

Have just reread Snr Vs post, the air all enters the plane through the middle and gets distributed throughout... Ergo, the chances are that the air is just as stale by the time it reaches the end regardless of which end you happen to be  ;)

Above link shows why I choose my seat as above... A fairly typical break up if the aircraft lands roughly the right way up.

iirc most of the survivors of the Sioux City crash were in the central section of the aircraft.

If the plane hits a mountain, surviving isn't really an option  ::)

Besides, there's a very big difference between surviving, ie not dying and walking off...

Always aim to sit at the front of the wing root... Strongest part of any aircraft... The main spar runs full width across the fuselage, making the tube much more rigid, and is ahead of the main gear attachments making it less likely to likely to get the legs shoved up your arse :D

People have survived being partially sucked out for an extended period of time, but suspect that the blade coming through the window would have been pretty definitve :-\

I know the 3 cylinder engines have a nasty habit if falling apart before the 100K mark  ;)
Much like the 1.6 diesels then :D

Reading your other posts, the heads were removed because the oil cooler failed, and presumably still is... No mention of it being replaced during the work.

Fundametally your engine has had a lot of unnecessary work without either diagnosing or fixing the actual issue...

Incidentally, fixing the oil cooler is around 200 in parts/coolant, and circa a days work once fully flushed.

Someone owes you an explanation, apology, a refund and probably a replacement engine.
