Blinds in the upright postion.

#1
Here's a question - can someone please shed some light on why airlines insist on having the window blinds fully upright for take off and landing?

I have heard one explaination, but it sounds like a bunch of arrse.

Its because if there is a crash the rescue bods can look in a see whats going on before they cut their way in.

so you can get the full benefit of seeing that you are about to smash into the runway at 200 kmph. (assuming a normal descent in a 747-400)

I see a number of you have gained the vision adjustment information from numerous Discovery Channel documentaries on air safety and crash rescue scenarios and cases.

It's not the engines failing at 30,000ft that's the problem, but the sort of landing that follows if you don't get them restarted, so in a way they're right...
