back to article Russian's Bulgarian airbags burst mid-flight

A Russian woman sporting a fine set of F-cup chesticles required urgent medical treatment when the Bulgarian airbags responsible for her enhanced assets burst during a flight to Los Angeles. According to Pravda, 45-year-old Irena D was en route from Moscow to California (aboard an Aeroflot Boeing 767-300, in case you're …

    I'm reminded of a routine by the late great Dave Allen about breast implants exploding and sending nipples flying down the plane.

    Grenade because they explode as well :)

    "I am shure the is no such thing as critical breast mass" boy was he wrong

    I was on a flight last year coming back to the UK from mainland Europe. On that flight were a couple of children who had obviously been to some party or event. They had helium balloons, unfortunately not the rubber kind of balloon, the shiny metallic look plastic film type... The type that doesn't stretch very well.

    About an hour after take off there was a *bang*... Needless to say you have never heard such a synchronised intake of breath in your life!

    We spent the rest of the flight looking at the other, rather strained looking balloon with distrust.

    A few points

    I remember reading a bulletin when this happened - it was flight SU-321 and the woman collapsed when the plane started to descend into LAX. According to the doctors the silicon implants were already damaged before the flight.

    Also, what's the IT angle?

    Not due to air pressure

    Mythbusters proved that "airbags" don't burst due to air pressure differences. The real reason the women's implants burst is because they simply failed. It could have happened at any time, it was pure coincidence that it happened whilst she was on a plane.

    I don't understand this...

    If this, and stories like it are true, why doesn't the same thing happen on the ground?

    Aircraft are pressurised to about 8 thousand feet. Mexico City is at about 7400 feet. There are many places on the ground above 8000 feet so why don't "Spontaneous Breast Rupture ©® whilst on the ground," stories appear in the news?

    Errr, in this case, considering she's 45, I think we should pass.

    So your wife has nice tits but you don't like to draw attention to that fact or anything.

    I love the comments sometimes.

    Be quiet my disturbed mind!

    Am I the only one that imagines a new form of female-mounted* altimeter? one where the cup-size is dependant on air pressure?

    'hmm - feels like 10,000 ft, (to co-pilot) do you concur?'

    time for a lie-down I think.


    PH would be what? 500ft?

    * don't go there - it's not a happy place..

    The IT angle is with the rest of the IT stories in the IT sections, something you don't usually find in the Bootnotes section.

    I'd like to be a fly on the wall when Mrs Duncha heard herself being described as "small and pert".

    Nah, don't give that bint a space suit - just shoot her into space :)

    Liquid doesn't compress/expand

    Surely the only way this could happen is if air was inside the implant, which is unlikely?

    Jordan wouldn't need one. At least that's what we should tell her prior to embarkation. It would be good if the event was televised as well...

    Re; Not due to air pressure

    I'm sorry, did you just say that the Mythbusters disproved something? Yes, of course, what with their rigorous, dispassionate scientific investigation that had nothing at all to do with television sensationalism.

    I'm sure they fired rifle bullets into the fake tits and replayed it in slow motion, or something. I'll bet they even found an excuse to visit the aircraft boneyard.

    It should be...

    Doctor> She'll need to go to the hospital.

    Passenger> The hospital, what is it ?

    Doctor> Its a big building with patients in it, but thats not important right now.

    Shame they burst though, cos in the other story (linked to this one) the airbags saved the girls life...if the plane had crashed would they have saved her life???

    I for one would welcome the chance to have DD implnats, it would give me something to do to keep me occupied between waking up and going to sleep...

    My wife has nice tits and I *do* let her draw attention to that fact she can wear whatever tops she likes!

    do you prefer a man who insists on a nice cardy? perhaps something akin to Tamsin Grieg in Captain Eager?

    Liquid doesn't compress/expand - who told you that? more to the point why did you believe them?

    Brake fluid is not water for a reason.... as with hydraulic oil etc

    We deem a liquid as "incompressible" only because it's degree of compression is sufficiently small. That being said [and more importantly here on el reg, to be pedantic] liquids are on some level compressible.

    Re: @Sarah Bee

    Er, actually I was talking about your good self drawing attention, on the internet, to the fact that they exist and are nice.

    You respond by informing me that you very magnanimously allow her to draw attention to them herself (do you let her occasionally go shopping on her own too? That's good husbanding) and enquire if I am some sort of subjugated prude by proxy. Nice work.

    Obligatory smiley face: :)

    What was the reg?

    Sadly Aeroflot do not operate 767-300's, they only have 767-300ERs (11 in service at present). Do you by any chance know the registration of the aircraft involved in this incident?

    I hope to see more accurate reporting of aircraft type, along with registration of the aircraft involved, in all future news stories.

    \mine's is the anorak with "Civil Aircraft Register" poking out of the poket.
