I was watching an Air Safety Institute video called "Real Pilot Story: Cemetery Crash – A near-death experience with valuable lessons for all pilots." It discusses a situation where a 1958 Bonanza crash landed in cemetery due to an engine failure.
At the 2:23 minute mark they are discussing the lessons learned and the pilot states that "I should’ve reached across and unlatched the entry door because that could jam in a landing, and in a Bonanza it’s very difficult to get out if you jam that door."
Is that really the proper procedure in the case of a crash landing? It seems a little strange to suggest that, while trying to land safely, the pilot should pop the cockpit door open.
