Aircraft Door Blows Off?

Sun Feb 05, 2006 11:43 pm

Hi All,

Just been watching American idol here in the UK and one of the contestants said that on their flight from Carolina to Texas the door on their plane come off??
They said everyone had their cell phones on ready to ring relatives as they thought they were all going to crash?
How long ago was the current American idol filmed?
Was this ever discussed on here, i don't remember it!
Infact i don't remember anything in the news either!

Could anyone shed any light?

I saw something on another thread somewhere, and IIRC it was a depressurization from a faulty door seal, not the door itself departing the aircraft...

Much ado about nothing...
