9. How Sturdy are Airplanes?
Ever wondered just how thoroughly airplanes are checked before they take off? Well, there is a very extensive list of constraints that need to be checked before a flight. However, there’s a threshold for minor failures that can go unattended to avoid delays. Don’t worry, though, these aren’t supposed to affect safety provisions.
In terms of in-flight safety, planes can handle thunderstorms and often even get struck by lightning without causing damage. Pilots are usually aware of weather before take-off. But buckle up as most turbulence-related injuries happen to those who don’t have their seat belt fastened or when unsecured items go flying across the cabin.
