Pressurisation failure and explosive decompression have caused some of the worst air disasters to date. BOAC Flight 781, South African Airways Flight 201, Aloha Airlines Flight 243, British Airways Flight 5390, United Airlines Flight 811 and Helios Airways Flight 522 have all suffered from pressure issues causing severe fatalities.

I have calculated it once: the chance to die of an airplane in the west is about one to a million per average flight. So this means you need about 2 million flights in the west to have a significant chance of dying from it. And on an average flight in nonwestern countries the chance to die per average flight is about 1 to 250.000. so about 4 times higher than in the West due to putting economy above life.

The videos of the planes just disintegrating in mid air is kinda disturbing, like there was just nothing left of it, that’s kinda scary.

decompression is what causes aircraft to explode from the inside out, it happened a lot with pre-commercial era of commercial planes, back then, they didn't know you needed compressed air to fly higher altitudes, wasn't until the 60s the technology was developed to make it happen but was very flawed, so there were deaths

An automatic decent to 10K feet by the auto pilot following a persistent/ignored pressurization warning might help. That or a vocalized warning at least.

I am glad that the earlier man mentioned how much we take aviation safety for granted. It really is a miracle that many planes land safely on a daily basis. After watching documentaries and reading about plane crashes for a while, I've grown to respect all of the people involved who make flying safe. Even the tiniest parts or decisions going wrong can lead to disaster. Every time I see a plane landing safely on my work commute (which is by the airport), it is both a relief and amazing to look at.

All crashes show us that we should not fly so much, and we definitely should not drive as much. And we definitely should eat less. And SAVE every penny you can because you’ll definitely need it later on because capitalists are eliminating all jobs with automation because there’s nothing that robots can nor do.

As Tom Clark points out below, the aircraft is pressurised with air. Not oxygen. Apart from this mistake and the abrupt video ending, this is a well presented documentary.

The Aloha flight was so lucky the flying pieces of metal didn’t take the tail off or whatever. Fortune was on their side that day as well as all the crew doing a stellar job.

@Laura Kristine if the cockpit had fallen off there is no way the plane would still be flying, however I’m sure when you’re in that sort of situation all logic goes out the window and your so terrified you can’t think. It’s an amazing event isn’t it. Those pilots and the flight attendant were real hero’s.

I remember seeing a longer documentary about this (I think it was the same show just an episode dedicated to that disaster) and the passengers basically weren't even sure if they still had a captain until the plane started to bank, heading for an airport on Maui. One of the passengers said the relief he felt then was insane because they couldn't even tell if the cockpit was still attached, let alone if they still had pilots. Crazy. I can't imagine going through something like that! Major props to the crew for sure. Moment of silence for CB Lansing, the flight attendant who was lost during the decompression.

I have seen when the wrong bolts landing gear ⚙️ assembly caused the gear to jam in the wheel well The bolt's we're too long and hung up in the edge of the opening in the Wheel well . So the pilot did dives to attempt to shake the gear down 👇 It finely came down 🔻 and locked in place ... Just the worng size can be a dangerous situation .. It's the little things that end up becoming a desaster ....

Cracks are extremely dangerous. Aircraft taking off and landing works the Aluminum back and forth like a can being worked back and forth until it becomes a big crack .. and so forth ... a minor fix for cracks is simple stop drilling at the end of the crack stops it's travel ... But the big problem with cracks ,is the ability to find them before that become a big issue ...

Does this really even need to be asked? Modern jet aircraft are giant, pressurized aluminum cans with wings, with tons of weight inside them, being hurled through the air at half the speed of sound for hours on end. There's a lot that can go wrong there, don't you think?

I just wonder about the staff training. Are they trained to spot signs of trouble like depressurization? Would they then talk to the flight crew? Increasingly, cabin staff are getting more demands put on them. It's not just about serving food and drink, or dealing with the odd heart attack. Their training should reflect the various scenarios that may occur during a flight such as, for example, depressurization. Even if they are incorrect in their assessment, at least by contacting the flight crew, it will alert the flight crew to a potential problem, if they aren't aware of it already. Ineffective communication is at the core of so many of these accidents.

Although the aircraft fusalge is pressurized, it's not pressurized with oxygen. It is pressurized with the same air that surrounds us all, only about 20% oxygen, and over 70% nitrogen and other trace gasses. So stop saying oxygen, and just call it air.
