Just over a year ago, Airbus tested its evacuation of the Airbus A380. It went faster than expected, with “only” one broken leg and 32 “friction burns.”

Now the infrared-camera video of the test, from a German news program, is online, including images from the cabin.

Naturally, it’s a test environment, with no emergency landing immediately preceding the opening of doors, and no smoke filling the cabin, but it’s still kind of neat…

Thanks to reader Todd!
