I am very curious about overwing exits being made conditional of the squat
switches. What happens when a plane lands on its belly with gears not
retracted ? (or if gears become detached from the plane) ? ? ? ? Does this
mean that overwing exists will not function ?

I would have thought that cabin pressure alone was sufficient in preventng
them from being opened during flight.
