Picture of the Day .... another odd named city police
If you’ve ever had a window seat on a flight, you have probably noticed a tiny hole at the bottom of the window.
You don’t have to be an aeronautical engineer to know that an airplane cabin is pressurized to keep us from passing out as we soar through the skies, 36,000 feet) above sea level.
It also stands to reason that – to keep that pressure contained – the cabin can’t have any holes in it. So why, you might be wondering, is there a scary-looking small hole in every airplane window? Well, in short, despite what it seems, it’s there for your safety.
Most airplane windows are made up of three panels of acrylic, so when you look through the plane window, you are actually peering through three different panes. The exterior window works for keeping the elements out and maintaining cabin pressure. If something happens to the exterior pane, the second pane acts as a fail-safe option.
The tiny hole is in the middle one and is called the “bleed hole”. Its primary purpose is to balance air pressure. There’s a small gap between the middle and the outer panes. The “bleed hole” allows pressure to balance between the passenger cabin and the air gap.The “bleed hole” plays an important role in keeping us safe, it also helps keep the window panes from fogging up or frosting over – the result of the temperature difference between the inside and the outside of the cabin – allowing us to stare out into the clouds.
