Another Day, Another Plane Crash…

Wednesday, July 15, 2009
Posted in: Plane crash


Is it just me, or are air accidents happening more and more these days? It seems the more advanced we get as a planet, the more major passenger transport accidents we seem to have, what with air crashes happening every other month. Or so it seems to me anyway.

These incidents help to make me a more nervous passenger overall, and whenever I fly these days, I do think about the fact that the plane for whatever reason, might not land safely. Sigh.

You can’t stop living your life because of what might happen, but it sure does make for squeaky-bum travelling.

My heart goes out to the family of the 169 people who lost their lives in this particular plane crash. Tragic.

    I think they seem more common because there ARE more major passenger transports whizzing back and forth – and whizzing further at that

    Sparkindarkness is right: the more flights there are, the more crashes there will be. The percentage will stay the same (and I think it’s ridiculously low-like .01%), however. Here’s a little link:

    The new materials being used might be to blame, too.

    I agree with “Sparkindarkness” – it’s simply that more and more of us fly frequently. I get on more planes than I do trains or buses these days and I always feel slightly nervous.

    On another note (as usual) I see that little, Argentinian git has defected to the other side of the city. I suppose Mark Hughes thinks that he’s building another Real Madrid over there : what a laugh !!!

    All Good Things,

  • Not what I should be reading while waiting at the airport…


  • Veinglory, take heart in this: your chances of being in a plane accident are still significantly lower than that of a car accident.

    Just an observation, though, seems there’s been more serious train wrecks recently too.
