Talk:Boy survives flight in wheel well of Boeing 737

Active discussions


I question this statement (whether it is from the sources or not):

Boeing 737 does not have an enclosed wheel well; the wheel merely retracts into an opening and remains exposed.

The photos provided clearly show that the wheel-well has "doors" that close after the wheel retracts. --SVTCobra 00:22, 27 September 2007 (UTC) Nevermind, I was looking at the front wheel and it appears he was on the wing wheel. --SVTCobra 01:57, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Pardeep SainiEdit

In 1996, according to the Guardian Newspaper, Pardeep Saini survived a flight, in similar circumstances inside the wheel well of a plane, from Delhi to Heathrow, by going into suspended animation. His brother Vijay Saini, who had stowed on board the same plane, fell out of the wheel well and landed in a car park in London. Sounds unlikely but I read it in this Guardian article, dated July 18, 2001. Web address -,3604,523278,00.html

I don't know if it was the front or wing wheels they were holding on to.
