Flight Attendant SECRETS You Probably Don’t Know

Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr

4 – Be Wary of Water
Never drink the tap water offered on a plane, this includes inside that tiny closet lavatory and expands all the way to swallowing the colorful collection of coffees and teas. And here’s why. The ports to remove lavatory waste and refill the aircraft with potable water are more often than not only a few inches away from each other. Several flight attendants, on a survey, admitted to filling up water bottles with water from the holding tanks. Also, those holding tanks are usually as old as the plane itself and aren’t cleaned very often, if at all. That water in the coffee pot may be swarming with all kinds of bacteria, best to stick with bringing your own bottled water. And if you simply must have coffee in order to survive, you might want to spend the extra bucks inside the airport concourse on Starbucks.

3Cash Me Outside Voucher!
A sad fact of flying, most airlines not only overbook, but it happens way more often than not. This is done to ensure that they make as much money from each flight as possible. Most people would be shocked at the staggering amount of flyers who happen to miss their flights. Airlines are counting on it. Yet this method doesn’t always go according to plan, which results in many passengers getting overbooked and consequently, getting bumped off their preferred, already paid for, flight. If this unlucky traveller happens to be you, know your rights! Your airline will most likely attempt to bribe you with vouchers, which can be exchanged for purchases through that airline. However, the pros will tell you to refuse those bits of paper masquerading as money and instead, go for cold hard cash payouts. If you are involuntarily denied boarding, you are entitled to a cash payment, on the spot. This can net you up to 1,300 dollars, or 400 percent of the value of the one-way fare, depending on the length of your unscheduled delay.

2 – Oxygen Mask Time Limits
If you have ever flown before, you’re probably familiar with that song and dance the flight attendants will do before take off, you know the one, that boring speech with the strange arm movements about what to do in case of an emergency. Well, maybe next time you should put down your iPhone and actually listen; because those few moments of instructions could very well save your life. Here’s a helpful tidbit to help you survive an airborne tragedy, as soon as those oxygen masks descend from their containment cartridges, you only have approximately 15 minutes worth of oxygen located inside those face strapping devices. This should easily be enough time for the pilot to lower the aircraft’s altitude, which will restore oxygen levels back to where you can once again breathe easy. However, at altitude, you will only have around 15 to 20 seconds to secure your mask before your body succumbs to lack of oxygen, causing you to pass out or worse. So, when those attendants of flight tell you to put on your mask before helping others, they really mean it.

1 – Think Planes Are Clean? Think Again.
While most people fret about that sickly recycled air pumping through the airplane’s ventilation vents, relax, the air onboard is constantly filtered, approximately twenty times an hour in fact, through hospital-grade HEPA filters. Now, as for the sterile conditions of every other aspect of the aircraft’s interior, anyone afraid of germs, may want to close their eyes for the rest of this segment. Word to those who fly often, watch out for all those nasty contaminated surfaces. Those fold down trays from which travellers often eat their onboard meal, are reported to be the absolutely nastiest and filthiest part of the plane. That’s right, be careful about resting your head against this hard plastic, because that innocent looking tray, is probably covered in germs! Take precautions if you want to avoid getting sick, for instance, don’t rest any food on that tray without a napkin or two placed beneath! Other surfaces to watch out for include, armrests, seat belts, and buttons in the lavatory. Due to time constraints, many of these areas of the plane are rarely, if ever, properly cleaned. Those pillows and blankets you often bug your flight attendant to bring you, well those probably haven’t been cleaned in years. Think folded and reused indefinitely! Be weary, for, in these sordid conditions, even the biggest jar of hand sanitizer in the world won’t save you! Though, those of us unafraid of germs for one reason or another, typically make it off the plane alive. Germs for thought.

Flying To McDonald’s On My Paramotor

AIRFOIL T-SHIRT – https://teespring.com/the-airfoil-t-shirt_copy_1

People often ask “can you fly that thing to work/school/the store?” Although it’s not really practical to do daily, I sometimes find an interesting place to land. This McDonald’s had a nice grass field that begged for a landing. Luckily, the local citizens found it intriguing and didn’t call the cops.

Experience life on an aircraft carrier “floating city” in VR

For the 5,000 sailors aboard the USS Eisenhower, long days and nights are the norm. Everything from flight operations to trash disposal must run smoothly on this floating city. See how it works in 360 degrees.

View more unprecedented VR scenes from the Eisenhower:

Download the USA TODAY app for more great VR in the “Virtual Reality” section.

In the middle of deployment training off the Atlantic Coast, the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower’s 5,000 sailors prepared for a missile strike.

Dressed in flame-retardant hoods and gloves, they practiced battling fires, containing flooding and testing for chemical or biological agents.

“All hands man battle stations,” commanders instructed over the ship’s communications system as alarms blared. “Missiles inbound, brace for shot.”

Hours later, the Eisenhower’s executive officer signaled the end of the night exercise. Robert Aguilar wasn’t happy. 

“We are moving out of training and moving into combat,” he told the ship. “This is no time for smoking and joking. We are getting ourselves ready for the war that we are headed into.”

That was in April 2016. The Eisenhower and its accompanying carrier strike group, more than 7,000 sailors in total, deployed two months later to the eastern Mediterranean, where they joined the international fight to contain ISIS and served as a deterrent to threats from Russia, Iran, Syria and others in the volatile region.

Where to find “USS Eisenhower VR”

The USA TODAY NETWORK VR team and a reporter from the Pensacola News Journal visited the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to gather exclusive 360-degree video and photos during three days of round-the-clock air operations. An interactive VR experience for the HTC Vive allows the user to explore a virtual model of the Eisenhower and discover 360-degree photos and videos from above and below deck. 

“Eisenhower VR” is the first time a major news organization has told a story combining 360-degree video and VR interactivity on such a large scale. 

Interactive versions are available for the HTC Vive and for Google Daydream headsets.  360-degree video features are best-viewed on smartphones or VR via the Virtual Reality section of the USA TODAY app (iOS | Android), the USA TODAY YouTube and Facebook channels. Samsung Gear or Playstation VR users can find the videos in the Littlstar app.
