I was on a plane 20 years ago or so and the door didn't latch properly Archived Message

not that the door was wide open or anything, but you could certainly hear that the door wasn't shut. Think driving down the highway with your window slightly cracked, but on a larger scale. |
You could tell almost immediately upon takeoff that it wasn't right. This was Detroit to Paris. we had to circle around Detroit to burn (and I think dump) fuel before landing.
Obviously we didn't have a landing gear issue, so there wasn't really any danger on landing, but it certainly wasn't a fun experience.
We also had to stay on the plane while they fixed the door.
has been circling over madrid for the last 2 hours to burn fuel.
that's gotta be a fun time
