There's a blazing discussion underway in rec.aviation.misc about forced ocean landings of 747s. At issue are the odds of the plane staying in one piece, how long it would stay afloat and whether it would begin to leak through hull weep holes or other openings, whether or not passengers would be better off remaining in the cabin or proceeding to life rafts, etc, etc. Would someone with knowledge of this issue please make a posting to rec.aviation.misc and share some insight? Many thanks!
