The ratio of mixing is also regulated, and with half the exits of the aircraft blocked, escape with minimal floor lighting in the setting of a clear dark night 90 minutes or more after sunset.

It started in 1965 as a rule requiring escape within 120 seconds.After that, it came to include improvements in escape devices, changes in in-flight and seat materials, and more appropriate crew training methods.
