How often do planes crash?

More people die in vehicle accidents EVERY DAY, than die in plane crashes in a whole year. Planes around the world carried about 768 MILLION passengers last year. That's a lot of people! Ever since the 9/11 events, passengers on planes have been very quick to tackle and restrain those couple of people who tried to damage planes. I am quite certain that if anyone on your plane tried to do something, people near that person would tie him up. But, the chance of having a terrorist on your plane are so very, very close to 0 as to be unmeasurable. There are about 28,000 flights within the US every single day - why would anyone want to target your plane? No reason at all. In recent years, 2002, 2007 and 2008, there were no fatalities on any US carrier. You will not die in a crash. Really. I mean it.

Christian airline passengers: Should atheists be allowed to pilot commercial airliners?

I think it is for the recruiting people to take care. We can have both negative and positive way of looking at things. Fate of all the passenger cannot be in the hands of that one pilot who goofed. God prevails everywhere.

What do you think about the second chapter in my story?

This is in regards to your first posting also. Sara (the girl on your first posting) knows nothing. Don't post your chapters on the internet. It is VERY easy for people to steal it. All they have to do it is copy it and then paste it into their own word processor, then they can edit it and do what ever they want to it. People who are pathetic enough to plaigarize someone's story to make themselves feel like they have talent make me sick. (It has happened to me on a blog site before) I have given you a URL to a site I think you can learn from. It it about character develpoment. Eve seems a little flat. Character development may seem like a waste of time but it helps alot, trust me. I have more advice for you if you want it. I love to help other writers so just email me if you want my help... (none of this was meant to be insulting just for the record)

HORRIBLE fear of flying and neeeed help!!!?

educating yourself about the statistics of plane crash incidents and problems might make you feel better for the odds of getting into a plane crash on a commercial airliner are 1 to 110 million; Therefore the only way you could assure yourself of getting in a plane crash if you went on 300 flights a day for the rest of your life. ANYWAY, realisticly this proably doesnt do much for you, however, minor to medium turbulance is mostly cause by air moving in two different dirrections. Thats all. What you experienced however does seem a tad extreeme and yet THANK G-D you still didnt fall in the 1 and 110 million. Ultimatly almost every time you feel turbulance just remember its is just the wind. Are you afraid of the wind?

Why the hell does everyone think 9/11 is a conspiracy?

I'm not a fan of G.W. Bush in the least, but I'll never believe he'd OK the 9/11 attacks. ...Unless he starts wearing nehru suits and carries a white persian cat around with him.

Scared of going on a airplane?

Hi, Firstly you have to know that accident can occur in any means without prior-information. Make a positive attitude when you fly by plane. Most plane accident are occurred in case of bad weather, in less visibility. In the beginnings make sure you are flying in clear sky time. And transmit the message to your brain that the plane pilots are well trained and well experienced and no way of any unwanted incident. Also think positively that the airplane security is so strict and no any suspect materials are held into the airport and in airplane. See others and feel how good they are feeling and how excited they are flying in plane. Enjoy the same feelings. You can chat with your friends or near by person next to your seat in any other matter. This way I wish you will enjoy your trip by air.

Are we decent enough to explore 9 questions re 9/11?

First off, the attacks were cordinated to be within a couple minutes of each other, we couldn't stop them because we didn't know what was going on. If it in fact was an inside job, the people on the inside would have known about things like the date, that would effect the outcome of losses. 9/11 was the first day of school in new york so many people took the day off to take their kids to school. If it had been any other day the world trade centers would have had over 60,000 people in them.

Why was Jason Bergmann of the Nats....?

Well if it was south jersey, then it's all good. If it's north jersey we got a problem. Cough cough Mets fans.

Im afraid of flying alone?

i have flown alone more than i have with my family, and it's no big deal. your parent or guardian will take you to the gate. when it's time to board, a flight attendant will board you first as well as people in wheelchairs etc. you'll be lead to your seat. you most likely will be seated with other minors, or wherever your seat is. don't worry about sitting next to someone that you don't know. and if you do have a problem, the flight attendant will help you. when the flight's over the attendant will take you to whoever is picking you up, and it's all over! there really is nothing to work about, and you'll probably get free food, ear phones, and blankets haha. and you're so lucky to go paris, have fun. hope this helps :)

an oldie but a goodie.?

goodie goodie goodie ggggggggggoooooooooooooodddddddddddddddddoooooooooiiiiiiiieeeeeeee enjoy another one>>>>>>>>> BILL MEETS SATAN Eventually, Bill croaks and Satan is there to greet him. "Welcome Mr. Gates, we've been waiting for you. This will be your home for all eternity. You've been selfish, greedy and a big liar all your life. Now, since you've got me in a good mood, I'll be generous and give you a choice of three places in which you'll be locked up forever." Satan takes Bill to a huge lake of fire in which millions of poor souls are tormented and tortured. He then takes him to a massive coliseum where thousands of people are chased about and devoured by starving lions. Finally, he takes Bill to a tiny room in which there is a beautiful young blonde with an alluring look on her face, sitting at a table on which there is a bottle of the finest wine. To Bill's delight, he sees a PC in the corner. Without hesitation, Bill says "I'll take this option." "Fine," says Satan, allowing Bill to enter the room. Satan locks the room after Bill. As he turns around, he bumps into Lucifer. "That was Bill Gates!" cried Lucifer. "Why did you give him the best place of all!" "That's what everyone thinks" snickered Satan. "The bottle has a hole in it and the girl hasn't!" "What about the PC?" "It's got Windows XP!" laughed Satan. "And it's missing three keys," "Which three?" "Control, Alt and Delete."

What do you think of my story?

The planes were not recognisable as planes from the outside ofthe buildings. The WTC after impact still had a top, it just had a giant hole in the sides. The roof was still on the buildings right up until the point of collapse. Also note one plane hit EACH tower. Your story implies that one tower was hit by both planes. Also the first plane hit at 8.46 am. So the phone call can't have been at 8.40 am, yet your story implies it was. It's a good start, but it would be better if you addressed these facta.

"star" if you like this joke..?

Good one there...here got 1 for you ... Upon boarding, safety announcement: "Welcome aboard FlightMH xxxx. Please put on your seat belt by inserting the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seat belt. If you don't know how to operate one, you shouldn't be out in public unsupervised.' 'In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with more than one small child...pick your favorite.' 'Should the cabin lose pressure, oxygen masks will drop from the overhead area. Please place the bag over your own mouth and nose before assisting children ... or other adults acting like children.' 'In the event of an emergency landing, your seat cushions will act as cushion against impact; and, in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments.'

how can i find my friend from school ?

stalk her friends until you feel comferatable knowing her inside and out, when you finally feel like you're ready, wait for her to unlock her door and sneak in. when she's in the shower climb in her bed and wait for her to get into the room, when she walks in the room jump out of bed, naked for the lawls, and yell SPAGET!

Please critique my idea for a tv show?

WOW! IT IS SOOO GOOD! IT'D WIN AN EMMY! WEEE!

Who goes burying survives nowadays?

What's up with Al Franken's Senate seat?

Would not surprise me. Any method is acceptable to the Dick Cheney crowd.

I was certain I didn't know anyone who was on that plane that crashed in Buffalo, N.Y.?

Yes, I read this article today as well. I'd learned they were our brothers at the time of the crash because a couple of different friends of mine knew them here in Canada. Especially being a whole family...how sad. But they were faithful and are in the best place being in Jehovah's loving memory. They will be back and will be warmly welcomed back. May Jehovah continue to strengthen their families, as well as keep all of us as brothers and sisters encouraged. Agape.

what is the best to stay calm on an airplane?

2 milligrams of Xanax

Lake Tahoe?? Is it fun there?

Tahoe is beautiful and nothing like the east coast. Don't worry about the plane ride. Bring a book, or something to do. Longer flights like that often show a movie. YES, be excited.

Riddles! Winner gets Best Answer!?

it's his mom dont' bury survivors

This question is about Aaliyah's..?

Likely, they were buried in the area where they last lived at, or taken back to their hometown if relatives are still living there. The obit for each one would have the details.

Why is New York called the greatest city?

That's because it IS the greatest city. It's always BEEN the greatest city. People have been singing about it for the past 150 years--even before then. NYC ROCKS.

How often do planes crash?

the plane is pressurized so ur ears will fell a bit heavy but no big deal, u'll get cotton buds or head phones from the attendants if u feel discomfort. it fells like flying when taking off and jumping of a cliff at landing (like in a dream in which u r falling down and wake up when u fall) only the the CIA and POTUS can authorize a 9-11, and the chances of the CIA to kill more citizens is highly unlikely as Obama don't need votes to get re-elected. More people die in car accidents each year then in plane crashes in 10 years.

What are the chances of a plane crash or losing my luggage?

Typically, bags are not lost on a regular basis -- statistics by the US Department of Transportation, based on information released by the airlines, indicate that between five and ten bags are lost per 1,000 passengers. The vast majority of those lost bags are eventually recovered -- typically, they are misrouted or otherwise delayed and end up with their rightful owner. (The page below indicates that 0.005 percent of bags -- or one in every 20,000 bags -- is permanently lost, based on DOT statistics.) As for the odds of being in a plane crash, the odds of one occurring (based on prior events) are so remote, you have a greater chance of dying in a car accident on the way to the airport than you do of being in a crash.

a plane crashes?

they are survivors so they dont need to be buried

Plane crash dream predicted future?

I googled to see if anyone else had had a dream about this crash. I found this question posted. So, I will tell you what I dreamed in the very early hours this morning - the day of the Hudson River crash (and I live on the west coast, so I am obviously no where near NYC): I dreamed that my husband and I, for some reason, were on top of a building next to a river. This was right near a big airport. We were watching the jetliners take off. Then, a jetliner took off, and did a really tight bank to the right, almost as if it was turning around. Then, it suddenly took a nose dive, and we watched as it plunged directly into the river, becoming completely submerged. We were totally freaked out, convinced that everyone was dead, or would soon be dead. We made note of where it went in the water as we scrambled to get off the building, down a fire escape ladder. I was trying desperately to call 911 on my cell phone, but it wasn't working, I couldn't connect. So, I ran to a nearby business and went inside. I told the lady behind the desk that a plane had just crashed and I had to call 911, give me the phone. She handed me the phone, and again I tried to get through, but could not connect to 911, it was incredibly frustrating. I was freaking out, very upset, and crying - sobbing really, convinced there was nothing we could do to help the people on board. I think that my husband had gone to look for a boat when I went to call 911. Next, I came out of the business, desperately trying to figure out what to do. The feelings of grief were so real, I was sobbing, and I'm sure I probably was really sobbing while I slept. As I stepped out of the building, somehow, the plane had been removed from the water. It was all wet, but EVERYONE was alive. The survivors were walking around, stunned, but OK. I was running around hugging people, saying "I know you don't know me, but we just saw the plane crash, we were sure you were dead. I can't believe you are alive!" Someone told me that everyone on the plane had survived. I was so happy and relieved, but still had adrenaline pumping. Then, I woke up. My heart was still beating fast. I simply figured I had a really disturbing and upsetting dream, and thought no more of it. Until, I called my mother-in-law this afternoon, about something totally not having to do with airplanes. She said, "I sure am glad I wasn't flying today." She had flown commercially a few days ago. I said, "Why, did a plane crash or something?" I had been home all day today, with no TV on, so I had no idea what had happened. Then she told me what happened. I couldn't believe it, the similarities to my dream. When she told me that everyone survived, I was dumbfounded. Chills went up and down my spine. I still am dumbfounded..... So, why does this happen? Was this mere coincidence? I guess that is possible. Or, is the future already happening somewhere, in a parallel universe (if you read some quantum physics stuff, they are convinced that this is possible, and real - very strange and hard to understand stuff), and maybe somehow we cross the boundaries from one to another, and pick up on this? Maybe this happens more in dream states, when we are in another level of conciousness. I don't know. But, I am glad to know that I am not the only one who dreamed of this. I hope to find out if there were more. Thank God everyone survived! The pilot and crew deserve a medal for their skill and bravery!

A plane crashes on the border of new york and new jersey were do they bury the survivors ?

since the survivors are alive, and you dont bury people that are alive, you dont bury them anywhere
