There are more plane crashes, which is why they report on them more
often, which strengthens the feeling of more plane crashes even more.

The one that just happened was with 17 children going for a ski trip.
Didn't make it.

IMO its mainly poor inspections of the planes, they battled with this i think in early of 08, I swear they pay more attention inspecting my car then they do huge metal things caring loads of people in the sky!!

Flight 1546 if I remember correctly had reported some problems two days prior to it meeting the hudson.

The USAir flight had a bad temperature probe in the right engine. That was fixed and verified, and had nothing to do with the accident.

The reason that it seems there are more crashes is because there are a lot more planes flying. A lot of the crashes are also general aviation, not commercial. General aviation has ALWAYS had a much higher accident rate than commercial aviation.

Yes its just because there is more people.
So there is more demand for air travel.
Its still the usual things that cause plane crashes.
