    Agreed, BUT remember, an aircraft door has to open out before it can slide over to let people out. he would have to be he-man to push the door out against a 4-500mph jetstream. and as someone else put, "if its low and slow it MIGHT be possible", well if the plane is low and slow, where is the danger??

    pull my seat belt as tight as possible........ and grab on to something really solid. "IF" they get it open, they'll be sucked out and no one will have to worry about them.

    I'd probably go hands on. I'm no tough guy, but I'm big enough to hold my own and I think in a 1:1 or possibly even a 2:1 situation I'd be alright. I'd do my best to take him down and restrain him. If I get in trouble when we land, so be it. While the plane is in the air, it's a matter of survival.

    I've heard of several panic attacks like that, people want to get out of the plane, no matter what. Their brains just stop working. There's one type of plane with a door to the rear that can be opened. No, I was not military, I was flying AK Airlines and we stopped over in Yakutat, and had to walk across the tarmac. That was about 30 years ago, so that model might not even be flying any more.

    Doors and hatches on modern aircraft are designed to come inward before they can be unlatched and opened or removed even with just psi pressurization it will be impossible to unlatch one in-flight.

    I like to sit in exit rows when possible, so I guess he/she will be dealing with me. I suppose it's another thing one has to think about when choosing to sit in the exit row.

    I would sit back, drink my 8 dollar beer and watch the dude get pummeled by other passengers.

    That is correct. The door handle will break off before the door will open pressurized for planes with plug type doors. The airbus type doors have safety pins that will not release unless the aircraft logic indicates the aircraft is on the ground, or other parameters are met. So basically the doors cannot be opened in flight without disassembling the innards, or several computer systems have failed.
