While some people (on this forum) are talking about pilots using a parachutes to leave the plane before the crash, it remind me on something. Couple of years ago I read somewhere that in the future, planes will be equipped with special parachutes to prevent a plane from crashing in hopeless situations. The nose of plane would be damaged upon landing but nobody would get hurt and most important, no lives would be lost. Parachutes would be deployed with some special rockets (or something like that –don’t remember exactly).
Did anybody heard something about this before, and what the heck are airlines and aircraft manufactures waiting for???>:->
It is possible thing to do!!!!!!!
