30 plane crashes in 30 days

This is the second similar plane crash in the Las Vegas-area in a week. An experimental plane killed three people Friday when it crashed into a home near North Las Vegas airport.

Anyone taking notice to the amount of airplane crashes lately? Since June 8, 2008 until August 22, 2008 there has been 20 crashes; and from August 22, 2008 until today there has been 8 more. I wonder what's going on as it just seems like a lot of planes crashing and no one is noticing.

30 ?

wowser, didnt realise it was that many.

Would be interesting to see what is the pattern - like are they all mechanical / electrical or just plain accidents through error?

Hopefully a little of both or it would be creepy. Thought it was interesting to note that the front man/lead singer for the Bare Naked Ladies just survived a plane crash the other day. And they say air travel is safer and that does seem to be the case compared to motor vehicle accidents, but I'd much rather die in an instant car wreck than knowing I'm going to die for a few minutes before hitting the ground... I don't want to know when it's coming.

I guess this might be the result of saving on maintainence. Fuel prices are so high, they'll need to save money somewhere...

Yeah i noticed this...good job i never went away this summer

The Madrid crash was awful, and if you have not yet heard about the plane having to land due to mushrooms in the air con...check it out, it will be on most news sites.

I was thinking about starting a thread about it...beat me to it

Thank you very much! Thought someone would have posted this already and was hopeful of answers, but this will do as well I hope. Thanks for responding

No problem
Did you check that story out about the mushrooms?
I have not read it for myself but a friend was telling me bits and peices from the newspaper earlier today, sounded bloody stupid

Is it possible that there can be a change in the environment, which can affect an airplane? Whether it's the weather we are able to see, or possible something invisible that can affect an airplane? I have been noticing a lot of problems involving airplanes lately throughout the papers.

That's possible as well I would imagine. I wonder if it will continue to get worse and we'll see more and more plane crashes. I know I wouldn't have been curious and posted this thread if something didn't feel right... just seems like an aweful bunch in a short time. Thanks for responding!

You should look into novelty theory.

This will be 60 planes in 30 days very soon.

Coincidences are very weird. They look significant, but can be easily explained through statistics. I wouldn't read too much into this.

Ive flown international quite a bit from Australia, all over the world.
and It may or may not have anything to do with it,
but the last flight, from aus to jap, was the worst flight ive ever been on.

The turbulence wasnt normal, 3 times on the return journey the plane dropped so significantly that women on the flight let out a scream, and the blokes.. well some screamed, but the others grabbed their armrests ..

Could presure/turbulence be changing some how?

I just posted the very same thoughts in the russia georgia thread about how many planes had crashed lately, particularly because of a big plane crash in Iran killing a whole bunch of scientists and engineers! My thoughts were covert actions and that they are also taking out other normal planes so the important ones get lost in the crash count!

Ultra lights are impossible to land in a high wind. Experimental airplanes are generally pretty small. Las Vegas can be very gusty, so that would be my guess for one of the crashes.

There are many aircraft crashes everyday here in the us and around the world. Mostly small aircraft. You just don’t here about them being reported. There is also a lot of emergency landings by airlines in the USA everyday. Smoke in the cabin, Loss of pressure. ( back ups take over most of the time on this one) electrical problems the list goes on. It scares me, and I used to fly in the military for living. But mostly I think a lot of the problems are from the ATC ( air traffic control ) and also maintenance of the aircraft. I used to listen to various CVR ( cockpit voice recordings) to see if I could learn something from their near fatal or fatal mistakes .I find that the ATC is mostly to blame. A good example is when I was doing cross training in the army with the air force. I was on approach to BEAUFORT SC with USAF StarLifter C 141. Anyway about the size of L-1011. A very big 4 jet engine aircraft for it’s time. I was told to proceed with my final and 2nd in line. There was a bad storm just in from the coast. I asked the ATC if the runway was wet, he said yes, I asked how bad. He did not respond back for at least 8 minutes by this time this Im 30 deg down on the flaps the first C141 has landed and I’m next. He get’s back on with me and tell me gusts are 30 knots from the east. the runway is wet and rain is heavy. Viability near 0 that’s right ZERO. Right then and their I asked for traffic and vector to abort the landing. The ATC was very firm and told me to land and it looks good to him. Any I told the ATC that he has to be crazy, My altimeter says I’m at 1100 ft, my landing light are on , I told the ATC I still could not see the runway. The ILS was working. but something did not feel right. So I brought the flaps up and put the petal to the metal. With no traffic report or vector form the ATC? I got lucky getting out of there. I was using the onboard radar for traffic and a vector. I later landed at cherry point NC. But The C141 in front of me skidded off the runway and this ATC guy has no Idea ? Yet he tells me to proceed. Yes, I got in trouble for that move, The ATC’s seems to forget the term pilot in command. I heard this ATC person did not even get so much as a yelling .

This goes on everyday people. If you only knew what was going on in that cockpit, I think you might think twice before boarding. The USA ATC system really needs to be updated big time; again.

Like I said you don’t here about crashes and Emergency landings or else you might no fly. But lately there seems to be a spike in the msm media reports. Could it be that someone wants us to drive to our destination during this weekend holiday, fill the tank for 3.80 per gallon and not fly?
Hmmm.

This is called a micro burst. sometimes you don’t live to tell about it. Seems like the ATC gave some lame info to the pilot. IE he did not get a clear picture of the weather and decided to proceed anyway.

He should have turned that aircraft around. but im sure he called the airline hq in flight and was told to proceed with the flight. they give the go or no go during midflight for a situation like this. Once again everyone forgets the term pilot in command. not profit in command. I'm sure fuel played the decision maker in this flight.
