Southwest Plane Fire – Houston

Take a look at this footage of a Southwest plane landing in Houston.  The right landing gear tires are on fire (just below the fuel tank).  Now watch the people coming off the slide at the back of the plane.  Notice how many people bring purses, bags, and other luggage?  One guy even pushed his briefcase down in front of him, and then stopped to pick up loose papers off the ground.  Sir, if you ever do that in front of me when it is time to evacuate a plane in an emergency – prepare for the beating of a lifetime when I get off the plane.  Please, please, please – for the love of God – it is just stuff.  It can all be replaced.  You should take nothing with you when evacuating during an emergency!!!!
