Ann Romney’s plane was grounded Friday after the main cabin filled with smoke. The small electrical fire caused no injuries, but apparently did cause the Presidential candidate to forget the dangers of altitude. “When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly,” he told the LA Times. “And you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem.”
Well Romney, just in case you forgot sir... Air crafts do not open windows because the cabins are pressurized to fly safely at extreme altitude. Opening a window in an airplane at that high of an altitude would seriously sicken the passengers and crew and make the plane very difficult to fly. The sudden loss of pressure also adds strain to the plane possibly tearing it apart causing it to crash.
