FLY­ING BECOMES SAFER YEAR BY YEAR

Science Illustrated - - TECHNOLOGY/ PLANE CRASHES -

When a plane crashes, it is all over the me­dia, but in fact, fly­ing is the safest of all means of trans­port. Ev­ery year, more than three bil­lion pas­sen­gers sur­vive fly­ing, and flight safety is the best ever in the his­tory of avi­a­tion. US Flight Safety Foun­da­tion sta­tis­tics il­lus­trate how safe it is to fly: a per­son who flies once a day must fly for 19,000 years, to be guar­an­teed of dy­ing in a crash.
