  1. 1. New Book Coming Oct 27, 2007 Professor George Bibel
  2. 2. &quot;A good book that explains how and why airplanes can crash … followed by explanations of the science that governed those incidents. The stories read a bit like mysteries… I found myself reading faster, so that I could find out why things happened the way they did. Bibel clearly has a love for all things aeronautical and that shines through on every page.“ — John M. Henshaw, author of Does Measurement Measure Up?

  13. 13. DC-10 has 3 engines Tail engine bursts… All hydraulics are lost (flaps, rudder, ailerons, etc.). Pilots steer by altering engine thrust. United Airlines Flight 232 7-19-89
  14. 14. Reconstructed compressor fan rotor disk Plane breaks into 3 parts, lands upside down. 74% of 296 survive impact, fire kills additional 12% (111 total fatalities)
  15. 15. Explosive decompression … One flight attendant lost, all passengers have seatbelts on and survive with injuries. (Popped ear drums, concussion, broken arm, etc.) Aloha Airlines Flight 243 4-28-88
  16. 16. <ul><li>The plane popped like a balloon. </li></ul><ul><li>The analogy is exactly correct. Many balloon experiments (and many other simple experiments) are described. </li></ul>
