Crash worthy tanks are a no brainer.
The rest is ridiculous...

Have you ever been involved in tourist ops?
There has been some complete rubbish said on this thread, this taking the prize...

"They were flying because in Tourism flying they fly everyday unless it is unflyable. The visitors are only there once normally so you have to take their money while you can. That is the commercial reality. Sad but true."

Are you a commercial pilot? What company dosnt fly if its flyable?...
You will go out of business pretty quick if you only fly on nil wind, sunny days.

It might be worth looking at the numbers flown, vs accidents in tourist operations. It might surprise you.
