'The exits on modern aircraft are normally referred to as "plug doors",' he explained.
'That means that with the use of clever door mechanisms, the doors themselves, when closed, are tapered like a bath plug so in effect they are bigger than the openings in which they sit.
'This stops them opening outwards and the pressure inside the cabin is equivalent to between two to three tons of pressure, which stops them opening inwards.'
