Unruly Passenger Subdued

Breaking news - and few details available as of this writing. But the disturbing part of the story to me is that the nut apparently tried to open the emergency exit door of the plane mid-flight. While common sense tells us that a passenger couldn't just get up and open one of these doors in flight, if you're anything like me (I'm not exactly the most stoic passenger on a given flight) you might have worried about such an eventuality yourself. The brief AP reports don't clear this up, but answer's here if you're curious.

It's impossible to open an airplane door in flight. The doors are designed so that they have to move inward before being swung open, and the cabin pressurization creates an enormous force against the door that prevents any inward motion.

Sure, that's what they want us to believe...

Obviously, someone hasn't seen William Shatner's star turn on Twilight Zone.

Are you aware of Prayer # 16 to Allah which reverses airplane presurization? It is rarely utilized as it is only good for 3 virgins and a goat, but it's out there

Are you aware of Prayer # 16

No, I wasn't - thanks a lot, just as I was feeling secure.

Did Shatner open the door? I thought he shot out the window - or was that Lithgow?
