Everything is worth doing for science!

What’s better is the documentary on this.

They forgot overhead cabin luggage storage and that would have made the test more realistic.

as a comparison in 2012 a similar experiment (including overhead luggage) was conducted using a B727 in the Mexican desert. (Or Mexican Dessert if you trust my autocorrect!)

Worth watching the documentary, available on YouTube as well.
