OK, they really didn’t, but it sounded good…
It gets mighty cold in that wheel well at 35,000 feet! Dummy should’a worn a jacket!
Sadly, that’s neither the first nor the last time that this has happened. I remember a few years ago a body fell out near JFK when the crew put the gear down. I think that flight was also from someplace in Africa. I wonder if it’s an intentional suicide or if they actually think they might survive all the way to the destination.
I remember that flight a few years ago. I think it was a South African A346 coming from somewhere in South Africa. If I remember correctly when the gear was put down the frozen body fell from the aircraft and landed in someones house.
I doubt many of these people are aware of the frigid cold and lack of oxygen at cruising altitudes.
I’m sorry - I just can’t get this image out of my head now…
Well… I guess that’s how the poor schmuck envisioned his arrival.
