Aircraft crashes – Are they increasing??

Aircraft crashes – Are they increasing??

In light of Air Asia [and pprune], MH370 and MH17, I found the following, which demonstrates the current situation and the response by Company’s, pilots and other organisations.

We do want an industry with acceptable risks, but with todays social media, even a small indescretion is not missed and serious pressure is placed on the industry to be completely transperrent.

It will be interesting to see the MH17 report and some of the recent material pointing to other military aircraft in the vicinity at the time of the crash.

An interesting article just published.

 

And the past 5 years of major crashes:

675779-141230crashes

And a recent Boeing report says it all – much safer.
