One would assume there's a whole lot of other things to do to enhance survivability for passengers, such as: - Pointing seats backwards. - Providing shoulder harnesses. - Requiring infants have their own seats and carriers. - Providing misting systems. - Utilizing internal furnishings that don't decompose into lethal byproducts when burned. - Providing smoke-hoods. - Making exits easier to open (as Boeing is doing with the new swing-out overwing design on the new 737s). -- Robert Dorsett Moderator, sci.aeronautics.simulation email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org "Bother," said Pooh when his engine quit on take-off.
