That Which we Call a Bomb by Any Other Name Would Bang as Loud

I knew it:

A source close to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) in Australia said: “It is looking extremely likely that one or more of the oxygen tanks exploded. It’s never happened before so nobody knows what caused it. It could be as simple as some cargo shifting and smashing into it, which shouldn’t be able to happen.”

What ya got there folks is about 350 people who, all at once, had their "time for you to go" clocks re-set. "Rather be lucky than good" indeed.

eMail this entry!

oxygen = not a happy element. It's not something to be messed with in an unsafe manner.

I second the this "shouldn't be able to happen" sentiment. Everything in a plane is strapped down to prevent stuff like this from happening. Everything.
