What if we could survive a plane crash? Ukrainian aviation engineer Vladimir Tatarenko has been working 3 years to find a way. And he did. He invented a detachable plane cabin which can be ejected within the seconds in case of emergency.
The cabin can land both on ground and water. It has parachutes attached to its roof and inflatable rubber tubes to keep it afloat if needed. “Surviving in a plane crash is possible,” Vladimir Tatarenko told LiveLeak. “While aircraft engineers all over the world are trying to make planes safer, they can do nothing about the human factor.”
Of course, if the plane explodes or is under a rocket attack, it wouldn’t help. Also, some argue that the detachable cabin could undermine the structural integrity of the plane. Finally, what about the pilots..?
“Surviving in a plane crash is possible,” says inventor Tatarenko
Once detached, two gunpowder engines slow down the speed and the parachutes deploy
So the passengers can safely land on the ground
Inflatable rubber tubes can also keep the cabin afloat if needed
No need to worry about your luggage – the cabin also includes a storage space
The cabin can be ejected through a rear hatch at the tail end of the plane during take-off, flight, or landing

Some argue that the detachable cabin could undermine the structural integrity of the plane. Also, if the plane explodes or is under a rocket attack, it wouldn’t help. Sadly, the pilots would be left behind in any case, too. Finally, some people question the cost-effectiveness of such an invention and the reason for carrying it out in the first place. “Of the millions of flights a year, less than 500 people die worldwide a year from plane crashes, ” said Isadora Kali Anne Seney. However, the inventor conducted a questionnaire and found that 95% of people would be willing to pay more for such a safety system.
