A project, costing no less than £1m, has just concluded that the safest place to sit on an aeroplane is at the back.
Well, thanks for stating the obvious! Did so much money really need to be spent to find this out?
When a plane ploughs into a mountain, it goes in head first.
And you don’t see pilots whipping a Boeing into reverse after they take a wrong turn and then accidently clipping the side of Mount Everest.
Planes go forward, not backwards. Therefore it seems obvious that most accidents will happen at the front, not the back.
What are they going to do now they have these ground-breaking results? Put bumpers on to the front of aeroplanes?
