Jax created the topic: Think plane crash = death? Think again!

Yet another interesting article with neat pictures! A photographer sought out abandoned plane crashes and took pictures. What's interesting for survival is the people survived these crashes. I think most people think of crashes as almost certain death, so we don't think about what would happen if a plane we were in crashed in the middle of nowhere. Survivorman does an episode on survival after a plane crash, by the way.

Commercial flights are a challenge since we can't take knives on the plane itself. I'm sure there are ways around it but I'm not familiar with them off the top of my head. In any case, enjoy the pictures. Most are military or small planes, but not always. I find the pictures fascinating.

Well remember to check the Baggage hold, if it remains in tact. Weapons of all sorts are shipped in there, and if you survive the crash, and so does the plane, hey why not borrow some stuff. If you make it out alive, re pay the family for the use of the gear.

True! It's always important to take stock of everything available. It's probably a good idea to pack a small survival kit in your checked baggage when flying. Just in case.

Just don't pack flammable stuff, or CO2 cartridges. :P .... cause TSA will take them out.
