This question goes through my head.

Have there ever been any cases of an airplane passenger surviving a crash because they used their seat cushion as a flotation device?

I'm thinking that - number one - most crashes, you're pudding. If you're not pudding, you're in a freezing cold body of water and hypothermia is near at hand. Or you're miles from anywhere. Or you landed like that pilot in the river outside of NYC but not actually swimming.

A big part of me thinks this is feel-good BS, like taking nail clippers away from potential terrorist threats at security...

But I'm asking - is there even one case, in the history of aviation?

Inquiring minds...

SG
