Copied a discussion thread from the Civil Aviation forum with guys who seem to prefer to discuss the quality of journalism rather than the actual incident.
Emirates A380 Slow Cabin Decompression (by ek433 Feb 15 2013 in Civil Aviation)
AND the Daily Mail link:
Just by looking at the picture....
What does the green indicator really mean? Does it mean the locking mechanism is off? I understand that the door would not open in mid-air due to pressure diff. but will it open when someone pushes the door?
Apparently there is a gap at the bottom of the door. Does that mean that the door has 'partially failed'? I.e.: The lower bit of the door has actually left the frame?
Many thanks for any input
