If a UFO has an extraterrestrial origin, then it should be a relatively safe assumption that it is a highly advanced piece of machinery. When we
humans design and build a new airplane, there is plenty of testing and retesting done to make sure that it can handle the stresses involved with
flight. Our planes are full of features that keep flying relatively safe.
Pilots have to go through a tremendous amount of training in order to be cleared for duty. Much of this training is recurring in order to keep the
pilots up to date and to keep the pilots from becoming complacent.
All of this testing and training has resulted in a pretty low crash rate for commercial flights here on Earth.
I can’t speak on how aliens might test their craft and train their pilots, but I bet that they do both.
One would think that as strenuous as atmospheric flight is, space travel would have to be even more so. Especially when you consider the forces
required to enter and leave various atmospheres. An interplanetary vehicle would have to be a very sturdy and well engineered bit of construction.
According to www.planecrashinfo.com...
the top 2 causes of crashes are pilot error and mechanical failure. Are UFOs death traps flown
by inept pilots? I some how doubt that…
Weather related incidents also rate high up on the chart of causes. I struggle with the idea that if a vehicle is designed for interplanetary travel
that it would have any serious problems with weather. We have planes that fly through hurricanes. Yes, a plane getting struck by lightning is a bad
thing. Maybe a UFO getting struck by lighting is also bad. I don’t know.
Maybe these highly-advanced craft are being shot down by us. Now we would just be speculating if we were to pursue that line of thought...
So, why is it that there seem to be so many UFO crashes?
