One of the features of the WWII B-29 bomber was that it was pressurized. The aircraft had pressurized areas in the front and the back of the aircraft. Connecting the two was a pressurized tunnel over the bomb bay, shown below.
This tunnel was a popular resting place for crew during long missions because they could stretch out in it. (Despite what some early pictures show, the B-29s used in the war did not have bunk beds.)
However, many crewmen thought that resting in the tunnel was also a bit risky because, if the plane suddenly lost pressure in either the front or rear compartment, they could have been shot out of the tunnel at considerable speed.
Was this a valid concern?
For purposes of this example, assume that the tunnel was 2 feet in diameter and 35 feet long, that they were flying at 25,000 feet (pressurized to 6,000 feet) and that the crewman weighed 150 pounds and was blocking about 1/2 of the cross-section of the tunnel.
