Oh, whoops! Should have flicked that lever, hey. That’s probably what a certain flight attendant said after this little mishap.
Someone going by the name of @Toughmutter on Twitter posted these images of an emergency slide gone horribly wrong at an airport boarding ramp.
The suspect plane is believed to be a British Airways Boeing 787. @Toughmutter reportedly denies the event took place on their flight, but says rather the photos were sent to them by a fellow in-flight staffer.
This is what happens when someone forgets to disarm the door before opening it. #crewlife pic.twitter.com/f3mV8CLdmH

“It doesn’t happen too often. The flight attendant didn’t disarm the door before opening, and the second flight attendant didn’t crosscheck her, so both are to blame,” the female Twitter poster told The Telegraph.
“If the door had been opened from the outside, the slide would not have blown. Since the attendant opened the door from the inside, the slide was activated,” she said.
“It would have been a super loud pop. Mechanics would have had to put a new slide in place of the old slide. There would have been no alarms, though, as alarms are set off by pilots or flight attendants in an emergency,” she added.
