What you probably didn’t even know existed.
Planes have changed greatly since the days of the Wright brothers, they are now many times more powerful, safer, and of course, more popular. Today we present to your attention a selection of the 10 most interesting facts about avipereletov.
The aircraft can withstand lightning strikes.
It sounds scary, but almost every passenger aircraft is exposed to lightning on average once or twice a year flights. However, modern Airliners are designed so that even a strong lightning discharge not causing them significant harm and allows you safely continue the flight.
In the cabin there is safe and dangerous places.
Studies have shown that the probability of survival in a plane crash very weakly depends on where you sit: in front, behind or in the middle of the cabin. For different types of accidents, the aircraft can be damaged in different ways, and therefore it is impossible to guess what place it is best to be at this moment. Fortunately, plane crashes are very rare.
In most Airliners there is a secret room for the rest of the crew.
On long-haul flights the crew working up to 16 hours a day. So they had the opportunity to relax a bit and lie down, in the aircraft there is a hidden room. In addition to a small bed, there still may be a mini-tub. Of course, this room is only available for crew members.
During a night landing in the cabin muted lighting in case of emergencies.
If during landing the accident occurs, the light will probably go out, and then the passengers will not be able to adapt quickly from bright light to dark, which will greatly slow down the evacuation.
The plane can fly with one engine.
Every commercial airliner is able to fly and land safely with only one working engine. Moreover, there are cases when the plane flew quite a long distance without engines. For example, in 2001 due to leakage of fuel from the Airbus A330 flying on the route Toronto-Lisbon, stopped both engines, the pilot managed to fly 120 km to the nearest airport.
The presence of ashtrays in the lavatory does not mean that you can smoke there.
Although Smoking on Board is forbidden, still there are people who violate this rule. In this case, and there is an ashtray, it’s so irresponsible smoker is likely to throw a cigarette butt in it, and not in the bin that may cause a fire.
A small mysterious hole in the wing is needed for normalization of pressure.
The airplane consists of external and internal glass. While the outer layer is a durable glass, designed to maintain the integrity, the inner layer is more fragile, it’s designed only for heat and sound insulation of the cabin. Thus, in the case of a large difference in pressure between the glass and the interior, the inner glass may break, if not this hole.
The food on top does not seem so good.
A notice that the food offered during aviapereletov, a little bland. The fact that weaker taste buds perceive the taste of salt, sugar, pepper and other ingredients. At the same time, the tomato juice will seem tastier because it does not lose its properties.
In the event of cabin depressurization oxygen masks will be able to provide you with the air only for 15 minutes.
It seems that very little, but do not be afraid. In fact, 15 minutes is enough time for the pilot lowered the plane to a height where you can breathe without oxygen masks.
White streaks in the sky from planes are traces of condensation.
During operation of jet engines stands out the moisture, which at high altitudes condenseries and forms a characteristic white marks in the sky.
