British Airways Flight 5390

Hey John! I'm a massive fan of your content, I found you quite some time ago on Tik Tok but never knew that you had a YouTube channel until a couple of weeks ago and I've been binge watching your videos ever since!
The story suggestion I have for you today is a little different than your usual stuff in the way that its not necessarily dark or mysterious, but I think it's incredibly interesting, and quite horrific in a way.
If you have not heard about British Airways Flight 5390, I would highly recommend you look into it, its about a pilot who got sucked out of the cockpit window after it shattered mid fight and he miraculously survived. I think you'd be able to make a great video on this!

[AMA Request] Tim Lancaster & Alastair Atchison. Pilots on BA Flight 5390 in 1990, in which Lancaster's torso was sucked out of a broken window (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Airways_Flight_5390)

My 5 Questions:

  1. At any point were you ready to die?
  2. (Lancaster) What was the last thing you remembered?
  3. Have you ever flown together since.
  4. Do you joke about it since?
  5. Did you ever consider quitting being a pilot afterwards?

I have no contact details, but this is an amazing story! My questions aren't the best either but I'm sure the people of Reddit could do a lot better if the time came
