Steven Slater's JetBlue Slide Escape -- Caught on Tape

8/14/2010 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's the VIDEO everyone has been waiting to see ... the moment flight attendant Steven Slater popped open the door of his JetBlue aircraft ... and jumped down an inflatable slide.



The footage -- obtained by our friends at WNBC in New York -- was captured by surveillance cameras at JFK airport on Monday.

Actually it shows there was little or no threat to anybody on the ground. He opened the door.. waited a few seconds, and then the slide began to slowly deploy. None of this "airbag explosiveness" that JetBlue wants you to believe.

This dude's job is toast! He could have just left by the door - it was already open to the jet way! He doesn't stand a chance in hell of keeping his job and he shouldn't. He overreacted and was unprofessional. He should have just said I'm done and left normally. They'll get him for job abandonment. Incredible how anyone thinks this guy is a hero.

The flight company should sue him and make him pay the damage or put him behind bars.

You need an an IP from USA to be able to see the video, even when you see almost nothing, because of some kind of antenna standing in the way..

There wan no altercation with a passenger. This little moron wanted him some attention, concocted a plan to get it, and the media is stupid enough to give it to him. As long as the media salivates over idiots like this, they will continue to do whatever it takes, including putting others in harms way, to get attention. Ignore them, don't have 50% of the front page posts on your blog about them every day and they will quietly vanish.

Never make a gay man angry. They're more irrational and vengeful than an angry woman.

The Slater Slide    

I thought he deployed the slide before the plane was hooked up to the walkway but looking at the video on youtube, the walkway was already connected to the plane.

So why the hell did he deploy the chute? I had sympathy for him because I figured the plane still hadn't docked, but now I think he should pay. Not 7 years in jail, but 1 year probation would be adequate.
