Cautionary Tales Short – nuts at 17,000 feet

Cautionary Tales will return next Friday (and every other Friday after that). Per Pushkin + subscribersI am proud to present another Cautionary Tale “Short Film”.

Notes

An excellent source of information about the repairman and his suffering is Matt Parker’s excellent book. Humble Pi; in official accident report (pdf) is also worth a read.

The horrific consequences have been described in contemporary reports from the Sunday Mercury, The Daily Telegraph, The Times, The New York Times and the Financial Times.
