View Full Version : Keeping Things In Perspective

The Daily Telegraph reports today that since 11th September, 70 million people have travelled worldwide in aircraft and lived to tell the tale.

I post this not to make little of the deaths which have occurred over this period.

Finally, just a thought but is it coincidence that the TWA aircraft which went down off the USA a while ago, the Egyptair over the Atalantic and now the Russian aircraft over the Black Sea have all gone down over water which makes accident investigation a lot more difficult?
