Featuring... Electronics - You get on a plane, and immediately start watching a video you’ve downloaded to your device. Then as you’re about to take off, the crew tell you that you have to turn it off. You’re not using wifi or mobile data, surely there’s no problem? Surely you’re not going to make plane crash? Well, you’re right. Sneaky airline business tactics - Flying millions of people around the world is big business, and airlines do everything they can to maximise their profits, often at our expense. That bit when they come round with the Sky Mall trolley, filled with spirits and perfume? Pets - Some people like to take their pets on holiday, so they load them into little cages and they go on the plane, in the luggage hold. Pilots' Food - In the classic comedy film Airplane, when everyone, including the pilots, who have eaten the fish get sick from food poisoning, chaos and hilarity ensues. The truth about the oxygen masks. - During the safety briefing, assuming you’ve turned off your electronic device, you’ll hear that in an emergency, oxygen masks will drop down. These lovely yellow masks will help you breathe normally at high altitude until cabin pressure is restored. What the airlines don't tell you is that there is only 15 minutes' worth of oxygen in those masks. Don’t worry too much though. 15 minutes should be more than enough time for the pilot to get the plane to a lower altitude, where the air is breathable. What you need to remember is that from the time the masks drop down, you’ve got between 15 and 20 seconds to put it on before you pass out. If you have kids put yours on first before you do theirs. Happy landings - Ever wondered why, if your plane is landing at night, they dim the lights in the cabin when you’re about to land? That's because if the landing goes wrong and they need to evacuate the plane, your eyes are already adjusted to the darkness. You’ll be able to see better you leave the plane, instead of blinking and rubbing your eyes. Pilot power - When you’re on land, you’re subject to the laws laid down by your democratically elected leaders, hopefully. But once those planes doors are shut, you’re in the pilot’s world. He or she is in charge. The captain of the plane can arrest people, issue fines, and even take the will of a dying passenger. Don’t mess. The bathrooms - OK, now on to some very unsavoury business. Whatever you do, do not drink the water in the bathrooms. It’s filthy. The airlines regularly clean the water tank with sanitising products, unfortunately the parasites that call this tank home build up resistance to the chemicals. So they stay there. While we’re on the subject of plane bathrooms, bear in mind that they can unlock from the outside. There’s usually a catch under the ‘No Smoking’ sign that can open the door in an emergency. When things go wrong - Data shows that things go wrong on flights more than we think. At London Heathrow, they get an emergency landing about once a week. Yet if you’re a passenger, you may never even know it’s happening. Communication between the cockpit and cattle class is strictly on a ‘need to know’ basis. Sleep - Pilots’ working rules state that they can be on duty for anything up to 16 hours at a time. That’s a long time, much longer than a truck driver for example, is allowed to drive in one sitting. As a result, it’s not uncommon for a pilot to have a quick nap while flying the plane.
I call 100% bullshit on the part about smoking in the bathroom. You must be out of your mind... smoking on an airplane is absolutely never tolerated anymore. There are ash trays in the bathroom just in case you’re desperate for your nicotine? That’s a lie. For example, the whole plane would be able to smell the smoke!
I don't know where these facts came from but they're absolutely yes, well at least half of them are!!! The one about this cell phone having to be turned off to force people to listen, for people to listen to what when they're Landing??! ... another spiel about emergencies? Their assumption that ashtrays are still in bathroom for the sake of accommodating unlawful smokers? At least one emergency landing per week? I'd hate to be at that airport!!
I don't know what 10 year old provided this information but it's pure nonsense!
First of all, cell phones are prohibited because, while they don't interfere with communication between the radio tower on the plane, they make a distracting noise that may interfere with what's heard from the radio tower, which can put everyone in danger while Landing. Test it, put your cell phone in front of a speaker while the radio is on and listen to the interference and noise it produces in the speaker.
There are smoke alarms specifically in each bathroom that would prevent any fool from even attempting to smoke one drag.
Emergency landing ... one per week?? The airline would be shut down regardless of whether passengers were aware or not!
These aren't the only nonsense facts some Little Fool listed, I have better things to do than go through every fictional clickbait fact listed!
Rumour has it that ryanair have a league table for pilots who fly with the least amount of fuel. if you're at the top of the table, Michael O'leary, ryanairs CEO, will personally buy you a car to say thanks
No 3 like many others are fake - The ash tray is there cause the plane is old enough to have been in service when smoking was allowed, which really wasn't that long ago. In newer planes, it won't be there. Passengers won't be able to light a cigarette on the plane as well!
10- The crew are more concerned with phones becoming projectiles in case of an emergency.
9- Pilots are required to carry enough fuel for at least 1-2 hours of fuel while flying NO MATTER WHAT. The fact that pilots are punished for diverting and flying around bad weather is bullshit too. Diversion to alternative airports is also a common routine if the main destination airport is unavailable or the airplane has an emergency. Pilots won't be punished for that either.
8- True (but i was under the impression they are given sleeping medication. Also, all bags and what-not are kept in DIFFERENT COMPARTMENTS and NOT SMUSHED TOGETHER)
7- True (why is this a secret airlines don't want you to know?)
6-The oxygen masks are also there to support your life for 15 minutes which is the time it takes to descend to 10,000 ft (safe altitude) under NORMAL CONDITIONS. The pilots will be descending like crazy (controlled though so the plane doesn't rip itself apart) So you won't die or actually pass out, you'll just get scared
5- First part, true. But, nearly every airport nowadays has what is called an ILS (Instrument Landing System) and not auto land system. And it is an instrument that keeps the airplane on the desired path, and is used for nearly every commercial flight when available, not just in foggy weather or bad visibility
4- They have the right to arrest you IF you are a potential cause of harm to others. But yeah true
3- True, don't ever take anything into your body in the bathrooms
2- True, but it will set off the smoke alarm. Most of these emergencies are 'landing gear won't retract' or a small failure of something that could never bring down the plane on its own. But pilots declare an emergency every time IN CASE something goes wrong.
1- Pilots are NOT allowed, i repeat NOT allowed to work 16 hours at a time. NEVER. This is under FAA regulations, as well as strict airline rules. Thats why there are always 4 pilots on long haul flights (e.g. Singapore to Germany) so they can switch shifts.
NONE of these were airline 'secrets'. I'm sorry but honestly this video was a bunch of bullshit thrown together by someone who has no idea what they are talking about.
Some of this is not true such as the pilots not allowed to share food that is simply a suggestion and not enforced. Also number 5 a lot of planes aren’t equipped with “CAT III” (auto land) features so in bad weather this guides the plane down to “minimums” (Varys but is usually around 100-200 ft so the pilot can see the runway enough to land.
They tell you to switch to airplane mode because if you don't it interfere with the pilot and the air traffic control. Like if you knew this. Fyi this what I heard and it is true. Thank you. Good day! 😁
Actually, you should put on the childs mask first, because the childs life is more valuble than an adults life, an adult lived nore and has less time of life, while a child as been alive for a short amount of time and has a LONG life ahead of them, especially if they belong to ME
For #5 you know there is really no such this as auto land. It is just frequencies sent to the aircraft so it can line the airplane up with the Runway called an ILS approach. The approach hold switch on the aircraft will descend you enough to touch down on the runway but its not that smooth. Pilots usually are the ones who touch the plane down but they do not just sit around during landing.
Having maintained Autoland A/C for over 30 years, I can tell you that I suggest you do some research. Until I retired, I was a B2, or Avionics L.A.M.E. Now GPS is commonly incorporated into the system as well, with ground co-ordinated transmitters to allow curving approaches to runways, or to avoid terrain.
When Macmillan talked about the wind of change, he was referring to the desire of African nations for their independence. But he might just as easily have been talking about education in England, where many concerns - about the extent of underprivilege, the need for a more child-centred style of education in primary schools, the unfairness of the selective tripartite system of secondary schools, and wider access to higher education - were now reaching a climax.
Tory education policy.
In his book The Making of Tory Education Policy in Post-War Britain 1950-1986 , Christopher Knight argues that in the period between 1950 and 1974 the Conservative Party failed to fashion an educational policy in line with Conservative philosophy (Knight 1990:3).
However, the beginnings of a Tory education policy can be seen, Knight suggests, in One Nation - A Tory Approach to Social Problems , published by the Conservative Political Centre in 1950. It was written by nine members of what became known as the One Nation group of Tory MPs, including Edward Heath, lain Macleod, Angus Maude and Enoch Powell, who were committed to preserving the church schools and the private sector, to defending the tripartite system, and to opposing what they saw as the enforced uniformity of comprehensive education.
In his contribution to One Nation , Maude wrote: The modern insistence on humanising teaching methods . must not be made an excuse for abandoning the traditional disciplines of learning . We deplore the present tendency to drag down the brighter children to the level of the dull ones (quoted in Knight 1990:12-13). It was perhaps unsurprising that the Tories should have spent little effort in developing a coherent education policy in the early 1950s because, when they regained power in 1951, the overwhelming need was for more school places to cope with the rapidly rising birth rate. Oversize classes (forty or more pupils) and inadequate buildings were the dominant issues for politicians, civil servants and parents alike . A wider vision of schooling was not yet developed
