An evacuation slide fell off a plane and landed in man's yard

Enviado
 
(CNN) — No, it's not a bird or a plane. It's an evacuation slide from a Delta flight. A large, inflatable slide fell from the sky and into a Massachusetts man's yard Sunday. It came crashing down from a flight traveling from Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport to Boston's Logan International Airport. "It's kind of crazy," Wenhan Huang of Milton, Massachusetts, told CNN affiliate WCVB. "Who could know there's something coming from the air and drops… (www.cnn.com) Más...

If you have ever flown into KBOS, I guarantee you have flown through "MILLT" (or over Milton where this happened) on the approach for 4L or 4R

"A large, inflatable slide fell from the sky. . ." From where else would it have fallen?

It could have fallen from an upstairs window, or an aircraft. Hey it is CNN, fake news. Anybody should know that the only thing that falls from the sky is hail, rain, and snow.

It's a good thing the guy didn't have a dog chained up in his yard cause if the slide were to hit his dog with Trump's new animal cruelty law he just signed, the captain of that aircraft could be looking at bricks on the wall for the next many years.

It's not "Trump's animal cruelty law" It's PACT, thanks to a bi-partisan House.

That is just crazy... Will be interesting to find out what caused it.. .Sounds like the guy was close to it when it landed.... Glad it didn't hit him or anyone else.

Bumping the emergency exit handle could pull the pin on the external door. Ask me how I know. You def don't want that thing inflating and wrapping around the tail.

True...but no one had to bump any handle..FAA "suggested" fixes back in late 2015

From where the slide fell it’s less than 5 minutes’ flying time to the runway. If everyone’s in their seats, as they should be that close to touchdown, who could have bumped the handle?

Could you imagine the irony of a slide getting sucked into an engine or damaging a control surface causing an emergency where after an emergency landing you are down one slide?
joelwiley

Do you want the irony measured in absolute numbers or a sliding scale?

Didn't the FAA mandate a repair order, back in 2015, due to "deployment when not called for"?? Numerous evac slides were popping out of their containment "structures"

An Atlas Air 767 lost one @ Phoenix Sky Harbor in March 2016 while landing.

aren't the slides mounted to the doors INSIDE the aircraft? How could it get outside inflight without the door opening?

I know that the 757 has a over the wing slide. It's in a compartment that not pressurized and its door opens outwards over the wing.
rapidwolve
rapidwolve 2
No..the slides are contained within a "structure" just under the door

The slide fell from a Delta 767-300. It was an overwing slide, stored in a compartment in the wing-body fairing, so outside the fuselage pressure vessel. When properly deployed it allows escaping passengers to slide down from the wing trailing edge. You can find video on YouTube of deployment tests of this type of slide.

If this is the case, and there was a fix for it and Delta did not get it fixed, then that is a really big oops on their part. The good thing is that it did not hit him or anyone else or a house.

Unless the 'fix' didn't fix the problem.

I think it is safe to say that it was not a Safe Deployment!

On many planes, you can see the compartment under the door at the bottom outside. It'll be interesting to find out which slide came out, and what plane. It looks like it might have partially deployed, or totally deployed. Still, odd...

Tough town to live in! An evac slide falling off a plane is bad, but back in 2010, the body of a 16-year old stowaway fell into a similar yard in Milton after the planes landing gear was deployed. Now, that can ruin your day...and probably your property value!

I'm guessing 767 for CDG-BOS. Someone can look it up.

According to the video by CNN and a statement from Delta, this was Delta Flight 405, which is served with a 767-300.

Well we all know how CNN loves fake news so here's the real story: What really fell off the 67? (yes only 2 numbers)today a fuel cell that came from a brand new 67 (notice only 2 numbers again) military refueling plane landing in a man's yard killing his beloved mans best friend fido and causing great concern for the captain of the aircraft whom, due to president Trump's new just signed animal cruelty laws, the captain will face some pretty steep charges possibly forcing him to watch the impending impeachment trials of Donald Trump for 16 plus hours a day! Also no guns will be allowed in the courtroom as the captain surely will be wanting access to a gun to shoot himself in order to get out of watching the impeachment hearings...Godspeed young man!...oh and RIP Fido.

Agreed.
This was totally preventable (the dog death, I mean).

Al Gore invented the inflatable evacuation slide.
clarify
clarify 11
I realize that Al Gore gets a lot of hate in these boards by some users. And I further realize that the truth doesn't count for much these days. But it's still worth trying.

You're clearly making a reference to the claims that Al Gore said he invented the internet. He never said that. If you're curious to what he did say and how it was distorted, the snopes.com article on the matter gives a good history (https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/internet-of-lies/).

Here's the actual quote from Al Gore: "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country’s economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system."

Quoting further from the snopes article: 'But a spirited defense of Gore’s statement penned by Internet pioneers Robert Kahn and Vinton Cerf (the latter often referred to as the “father of the Internet”) in 2000 noted that “Al Gore was the first political leader to recognize the importance of the Internet and to promote and support its development” and that “No other elected official, to our knowledge, has made a greater contribution [to the Internet] over a longer period of time”.'

But if you want to connect all the pieces, the full snopes.com article is a good and instructive read.
