This happened near where I live in Milton Massachusetts. A 16 yearold got inside the wheel weel in North Carolina and probably passed out from the cold or lack of oxygen. Wheel the door opened before landing at out he came and he landed on someone front lawn. He would have been safer hitch hiking.

Poor kid. Sad to lose a young man like that, he didn't know any better.

I could invision some maiden wishing to find a man or someone listening to that old song "its raining men" as they are on that street. It is sad for a life lost but that is not an intelligent move. It is not like hoping a slow moving freight train for a free ride many do.

Like a giant ice block hitting the ground.
There are no blanket services in the wheel well section.

There really aren't any blanket services in the cabin anymore, either.

SUSPECTED stowaway? What's their second choice for where the body came from?

Well I guess fellow Mythbusters this answers the question, if a body is frozen and dropped from an airplane will it shatter on impact. CONFIRMED.
So don't try this at home.
Next week we drop "Hello Kitty" from a plane to see if she lands on her little feet.

Where was the planbe coming FROM?
"The temperatures in the undercarriage reach -40C [-40F] at high altitudes, . . ." Umm, I don't THINK so -40C = -8F

Uh duh asleep during science class? The only easy C to F conversion is -40 because that is where the numbers match. -40F is 72 F degrees below the freezing point of water. -40 C is 40 C degrees below the freezing point of water. One C degree = 1.8 F degrees, -40 C degrees = - 72 F degrees. -72 + 32 = -40 on the F scale.

Some planes have data displays with things like outside air temperature. At 36,000 feet it is routinely -40 to - 55 F. The coldest I have ever personally seen the display was -59 F. Crossing the pole in winter? No. Just before beginning to descend into Singapore. Almost on the Equator. In summer. It is still that cold where the big jets fly.

Adiabatic lapse rate equals about 3 degrees for every thousand feet.

don't you love it when the big jets go up a little higher to 38,000 or 40,000 wild !!!!

Deg C to deg F is calculated by the following formula Cx9/5+32 = F (not subtracting 32) so -40C = - 40F

How did they miss him during the Captains walk around? The ground/ramp crews did not see him? What if he had a packed vest on him? I know security is not failsafe, but obviously needs to be re-evaluated and improved.

Sorry for the previous typos, please don't blame TSA for this, first, it's not a US flight...being ex-Air Force I spent years working on and alongside a flight line, do you have any idea how big the grounds are that surround a commercial airline's runways and tarmac? If someone wants to get on the property, it's not impossible. There are alarms, motion sensors etc, but it must be imperfect due to animal life, more than I can explain here...however...the plane should have eyes on it before it ever taxi's. no excuse for that as he could have had a device. If he dropped from a plane out of Heathrow, epic fail by their security.

I wonder how many are actually crushed when the landing gear retracts and the door closes.
