Myth about Airplanes
THE SEAT BELT IS DANGEROUS
Many people in cars believe seat belts damage their chances of survival. This isn t the case. They re highly important for stopping broken bones and all the other injuries which come from a plane crash.Whilst the argument they hinder escapes is valid, unbuckling is a matter of pressing a button. The alternative to not having a seatbelt is flying out of your seat and smashing another passenger in the back of the head.
