A Boeing jetliner crashed near the East Midlands airport in England in 1989. The crash occurred during an emergency landing, killing a full third of the passengers on board. Doctors who attended to the survivors of the crash, found those who had “braced” prior to the crash, were less likely to have brain trauma or concussions, regardless of where they sat on the plane. The “brace” position in an airplane is head bend forward, feet planted on the floor. Since 1967, the FAA has been studying the brace position, using crash dummies. There have been some adjustments made on the exact posture for those in an anticipated crash, however the basic principles have remained the same.
