Wilkinson Quoted in Stowaway Article

Elizabeth Wilkinson, Chair of the Aerospace Medical Association’s (AsMA’s) Air Transport Medicine Committee and an AsMA Fellow, was quoted in an article about stowaways on airplanes in Air magazine.

The article is about those who have stowed away in an airplane, most often in the undercarriage where the wheels retract, and the consequences of that. Dr. Wilkinson was interviewed about what a stowaway is exposed to and what can happen as a result.
