The co-pilot was sucked halfway out of the cockpit and passengers started losing consciousness due to low pressure.

26 April 2020 | by catpantrySee all my reviews

The people in this were coma and elson prather. I think people can forget how to fly a plane if they've stayed in a bathroom for 72 years. That's what happened. The guy resurfaced after 72 years and they let him resume immediately, saying: Its been a long time, but good to have you back.
