fuselage is a bit


a: A fuselage is a bit ~
b: a soda bottle with a hole in the back


"The airplane body (fuselage) is a long tube capable of withstanding a fair amount of differential air pressure; think of it like a big plastic soda bottle. In theory, we could seal the bottle so, as the airplane climbs, the interior air pressure would stay the same. We can't do that because it's hard to perfectly seal a huge airplane fuselage."
