Well....busses do it better!!:)

on a bus, the doors will accually ride open, due to the vacuum created 
around the sides..(not all the way open, but maybe 5 or 6 inches)
which makes it much easier to change lanes....a little door here, a lot 
more there...:)

We have been known to cruise around town doing exactly that...:) (or we 
just fly, which means holding the doors fully owpn with one foot..........)

Allways wear seatbelts when flying...:)
