Know How to Assume the “Brace” Position? You Will If You Read This

January 19, 2009 | Posted in: Flight Attendants,Travel Safety,Travel Tips

By all accounts of last week’s “gentle” crash landing of US Airways flight 1549, there was precious little time between the engines conking out – and the plane going down.

But passengers say, there was enough time for flight attendants to demonstrate how to do the “brace position” – and to make sure everyone was in that position. But what if there hadn’t been enough time to demonstrate the brace position? Could you do it, quickly and correctly?

Gadling has a quick-and-easy tutorial that will take you all of 30 seconds to read, and you can find the basics of the “brace” position on several other sites.

Take a few seconds now to learn the brace position, and then just tuck this information away in a corner of your mind. Odds are, you will never have to retrieve it – after all, you do have a better chance of being struck by lightning – but I’m sure the folks on flight 1549 never thought they’d wind up in the Hudson last Thursday, either.
