A change in cabin pressure on Delta Flight 4718 blew two of the cargo doors ajar, raining bags across the Midway Airport area. Only two bags were declared missing. One was found almost a kilometre from the airport, the other is still MIA.
What is more frightening:
- you are in an aircraft and a door "comes ajar";
- you are minding your own business plane spotting and a carry-all falls on your head; or
- you turn up to a check in counter for an American airline - any American airline - and the check in clerk tells you "I'm sorry sir you are going to have to check that bag"?
