The video we are about to show you of a device to save passengers in case of emergency went viral on the internet this week. It shows a plane taking off normally, but the left engine caught on fire soon after and the aircraft begins its deadly free fall. This is a desperate scenario in which there’s no hopes for survival. That is unless the plane had this special safety system created by the Ukrainian aeronautical engineer Vladimir Tatarenko, in which a simple push of a button would be enough to save all the passengers in the plane.
The engineer, who has worked in the Antonov project and even participated in the creation of the giant AN-225 Mriya cargo aircraft, proposes creating a huge escape capsule for commercial aircraft, which can be launched from the back of the plane in case of emergency.
