I know a Friend who was loading an IL76 on the Tarmec at Mumbai .After Loading was completed He went in to check the Lashings.When he turned around e noticed the Cargo Door was closing.He tried calling out to the people outside,but the noise outside covered his yell.Finally the doors were closed.
The mistake was that the Grd staff did not do a Staff count.
It was only later they realised he was missing & informed the Destination ie Bangkok.
Meanwhile our Friend was in total panic in the Dark,held on to the Lashings with his life & even peed in his pants in panic.
When the Aircraft landed at Bangkok,he was shivering with the Cold [Guess no heat in cargo deck].They took him to a Hospital for a Medical check,gave him a Sponsored rest & a few days break at Bangkok before Flying him back commercial to Mumbai.

Your mate must be a right muppet! On the IL-76 you can walk from the cargohold all the way to the cockpit unobstructed.

With Cargo loaded Is there Space Available,& what about Lighting.Im talking of the Way some cargo operators load their IL76.
Tell me cause I will be seeing him on Friday & can ask him Why he did not.
