This Detachable Plane Cabin Could Save Lives in the Future (6 pics + 1 video)

Ukrainian aviation engineer Vladimir Tatarenko has invented a plan cabin that can be ejected within seconds in an emergency situation. He believes this design could make surviving a plane crash possible. What do you think?


“Surviving in a plane crash is possible,” says inventor Tatarenko

Once detached, two gunpowder engines slow down the speed and the parachutes deploy

So the passengers can safely land on the ground

Inflatable rubber tubes can also keep the cabin afloat if needed

No need to worry about your luggage – the cabin also includes a storage space

The cabin can be ejected through a rear hatch at the tail end of the plane during take-off, flight, or landing

Some argue that the detachable cabin could undermine the structural integrity of the plane. Also, if the plane explodes or is under a rocket attack, it wouldn’t help. Sadly, the pilots would be left behind in any case, too. Finally, some people question the cost-effectiveness of such an invention and the reason for carrying it out in the first place. “Of the millions of flights a year, less than 500 people die worldwide a year from plane crashes, ” said Isadora Kali Anne Seney. However, the inventor conducted a questionnaire and found that 95% of people would be willing to pay more for such a safety system.

This is from the Onion...right?? Since the heaviest portion of the plane is the cabin and it's hold when fully loaded, why bother separating anything and simply have the parachutes carry the whole plane back down to earth, jettison the engines..... if anything.
