1950s Safety Evacuation Slide

Safety evacuation slide we can gain some peace of mind knowing our plane is equipped with an inflatable plastic evacuation slide in case of an emergency but that wasn’t always the case. It wasn’t until the 1950s that aircraft makers began installing this essential piece of safety equipment, made primarily with nylon plastic fabrics. These durable, water-resistant slides can help stranded airplane passengers evacuate when needed, on land or water.
