Thumbs up

Muppet indeed. Stick to the Beano please.
Hey genius, some names are already taken. Which means you have to creatively spell them differently.

And I guess you missed the main point of my post, which was humor.

Boy, I bet you are a hoot at parties.

I presume you meant "humour" - do let me knbow when you get to the funny bit, and then you'll be awarded one of these:

Me? Of course not - I'm an aeronautical engineer so I understand how these machines were designed and built. Why would I risk flying in them? Just how stupid do you think I am?? [rhetorical]

Also being an English Gentleman I have servants to do my travelling for me, like all proper people.

Compressor Stall: Just remind me what airliner accidents this concept (should it be able developed) might be useful in?

I can think of just two
For discussions sake I can think of more. Ignoring the practicalities of such a system, a black and yellow pull handle might have been useful on:

Swissair MD-11- smoke, fire, crash
DC-10, Chicago, engine separation (depending on altitude/attitude restrictions of the hypothetical system)
JAL 747- bulkhead failure
Alaska Airlines- jackscrew failure
United DC-10-Sioux City, Total hydraulic loss
Concorde- (maybe- again depending on the system)
Aeromexico DC-9, midair Los Angeles- lost horizontal stabilizer
South African 747- fire in hold
Valuejet, Everglades USA- fire in hold
Avianca 707? - fuel starvation Long Island
Dominican Republic? 757? Taped over airspeed sensors, loss of control
A-300, 2001, vertical stab departs aircraft.
Air France 447- assuming someone knew what was going on in time
AirAsia, 2014- high speed stall?
Tranasia ATR- engine failure, wrong engine pulled back.

I did not include shootdowns, highjackings, intentionals, as we do not know the full picture or extent of the damage.

Quite a few more breakups where a system may/may not have helped depending on the damage, multiple losses after after multiple go-arounds in bad weather (would they pull the handle instead of the third etc. blind approach??) and many more from more obscure airlines/Eastern Block- the hypothetical list could likely be expanded quite a bit.
