Zut alors, ferme la port!

We all know that nobody quite does insouciance quite like the French, but every now and again someone raises the bar when it comes to not giving a fuck for the consequences.

Sandrine Helene Sellies, 34 has admitted attempting to open an airplane door mid-flight so that she could smoke a cigarette. Sellies, who has a fear of flying, like all good citizens had drunk alcohol and taken sleeping tablets ahead of the flight from Hong Kong to Brisbane.

She was seen on the Cathay Pacific plane walking towards a door with an unlit cigarette and a lighter. She then began tampering with the emergency exit until she was stopped by a flight attendant.

Sandrine, we salute you! Please make yourself known to the check-in staff.

I bet all the flight attendants took it in turns to sit on her for the rest of the flight, even though she was already strapped to the floor with luggage straps.

Just to make sure.

There's a flight attendant job with Lagos Airways for Mme Sellies.

Of course not many news agencies bothered to ad the caveat to the story that as modern airliner doors open inwards it's impossible to open them against the higher cabin pressure whilst at altitude.
