That's not a slide.

It's a raft. I'm not sure which aircraft type this is but I know on some 757's they're stored in a compartment above the center isle (The emergancy card shows and illistration of two people getting it down). judging fromt he seating config, I think that's what this was. I can only guess maybe it fell and the release cord got pulled.

Looks like Southwest seats to me, so it can only be a 737

I recall OPNLguy saying a while back that WN was installing overwater kits in their planes, so maybe they had an "accident" during the installation of the rafts or something

Puncture the slide with the raft knife or something sharp as quickly as possible to prevent passenger or crew entrapment. (I'm serious...)



Release your seat-belts and get out! Leave everything!

Southwest wasn't equipped for overwater ops in 2003.

It's a Virgin Blue 737

On 737s, the rafts are also in the ceiling compartments, and depedning on which type, they're in different locations.
On the 737 800, they're at the front, and also at the overwings; as in a ditching the aft doors are of no help as they'd be in the water due to the length of the aircraft. Whereas the shorter series have them at the forward and the aft doors.

Probably someone Installing the Escape Raft without the Safety pin on.The Safety pin would be removed after the Raft is Installed in location to be activated by Door opening in Emegency.
There is a Manual Deflation plug to Deflate the Slide/Raft too.
This looks like a Mx error while replacing.

Completely missed the date on that... Looks like someone else ID'ed it as Virgin Blue
