Horrible Plane Accident: Nepal Plane Crash has horrified people. Seeing the videos related to the accident, people are making different kinds of speculations, but accidents happen many times or are untoward. Today we will tell you about one such heart-wrenching air accident. It can never be forgotten in aviation history, when only its main pilot flew away from a moving plane and a total of 87 people were waiting for a safe landing in the plane.

You must have seen such scenes in all the Hollywood movies, where some ruckus is going on in the plane, but this has happened in real life too. The plane was flying at an altitude of 23 thousand feet at its full speed. Amidst the speed of 800 km / h and strong winds, suddenly a windscreen of the plane is uprooted and the chief pilot (Pilot Being Sucked Out Of Window) is pulled from his seat and hangs outside in the air.

This incident, which sounds like a movie, happened on June 10, 1990 in British Airways flight number 5390 . This flight flew from Birmingham, England to Malaga, Spain. Everything was fine, meanwhile after about 20 minutes there was a loud explosion in the cockpit. Within seconds, the plane's chief pilot, Captain Timothy Lancaster, was seen hanging out the window after the windscreen was smashed. He would have been completely pulled out of the air had it not been for crew member Nigel Ogden reaching down and grabbing his lower leg. Trapped in the chair, he held on to them, while the strong icy wind was pulling him out too.

Flight documents and luggage started flying 

The wind was so strong that the flight documents and other things inside were blown out. Ogden was struggling to hold on to the pilot while two flight attendants were there to fix loose objects. Since the plane did not have enough oxygen for all the passengers, co-pilot Atchison brought it down to a level where sufficient air pressure could be obtained. He contacted the control room, but due to the strong wind, he could not communicate. Ogden was also getting tired holding the pilot, so he handed over this work to other crew members. On the other hand, the pilot's head was continuously hitting the deck, in such a way people felt that he would not be able to survive.
