|THE PILOT THAT WAS SUCKED OUT OF THE PLANE COCKPIT by Starboy(m): Mon 07, February, 2022|
Some 27 minutes after takeoff of a British Airways flight moving from Birmingham to Malaga back in 1900, and as the plane was travelling over Oxfordshire, two of the six cockpit windows shattered.
Captain Tim Lancaster was ripped from his seat and sucked out of the window at 23,000ft, and the force also blew the cockpit door from its hinges, nearly knocking flight attendant Nigel Ogden to the ground
But Mr Ogden rushed into the cockpit and managed to grab the pilot's legs as he disappeared out of the window.
Bad turned to worse in those moments as Mr Oghen also started to gradually slip out of the window while holding onto the pilot; but thankfully, a second cabin crew member called John Heward ran into the cockpit and grabbed him by the belt.
The co-pilot Alistair Atchinson took charge of the controls, and in that instant a second flight attendant called Simon intuitively fastened himself into the third pilot's chair and helped to hold on to the chain of men.
For about 30 minutes the pilot was in this position while Alistair struggled and eventually landed the plane. The pilot suffered several fractures and frostbite, but survived.
