Very Scary Indeed

Recommended Posts

I don't know why it surprises me. There 1000's, if not hundreds of thousands of aircraft flying each day. But just to see it in print of how many crash or have trouble each day, well, it puts a whole new light on things.Check it the last 10 days:http://www1.faa.gov/avr/aai/iirform.htm#datatableMore, goes way back to 1962:http://www.ntsb.gov/ntsb/month.asp[div align=center][link:www.jetdoc.com/STO/]Visit The Bookstore & Gift Shoppe][/b

I must say those numbers are incredibly low given the number of aircraft movements in the US each day (the data is of course US only).If you check out the accidents with fatalities you'll notice that most if not all are with homebuilts and light aircraft, and most of the rest are business aircraft.People flying those are often not the most safety conscious, and there's a lot of incidents during flight training as well.

What is really amazing is that for the commercial airplanes, there were no mechanical failures - turbulance, a few ground collisions and one bad landing. Pretty good given the number of hours in that time span.

As well, most of the accidents listed have no or minor injuries...

Actually, there was one Part 121 incident on June 7 that looks like some sort of mechanical failure.
