Seriously, though, would you dive out headfirst or try to get out feet first facing the wall? Would it make a difference if there were several occupants who had to escape through the same exit?
I'm beginning to wonder wheether an inflatable slide, like airliners have, would be a good idea. Something to hold the escape hatch in the fully open position would be good, too, so the weight of the hinged window on your back wouldn't slow you down.
I think I'm going to look into an air actuator powered by a small pressure bottle to hold the exit window wide open, or maybe a breakaway attachment instead of the top-edge hinges?. I remember my son-in-law, who was a flight engineer/loadmaster on USAF C-141s describing the emergency exit on the C-17. When you pulled the lanyard to "open" the C-17's escape hatch, a length of explosive string actually blew out a section of the skin above the flight deck.
