Look at the altitudes that airliners cruise at and check out what the temperatures are at those altitudes on even the warmest days, and get back to us.

Aircrash Investigation and Seconds from Disaster are some on my favorate shows....its just sad that some little careless-ness and distraction lead to disaster....

great show indeed.

how about that flight where the pilots window gave out and pilot got sucked out and the flight attendant was holding him by his foot.

that was some miracle.
