1920s (approx) Diversion Caused By Inflatable Bra

My wife played this story for me this morning. A woman was wearing an inflatable bra on a non-pressurized flight, and as the air pressure decreased in the cabin, the volume of the bra increased until it burst. The crew landed, thinking there had been an explosion. She was later billed $400 for the diversion.

Sign of the times. Now instead of the airline fining the woman, she would sue the airline.

So would this qualify as history's first inflight entertainment?


I scratch my head, therefore I am.
