Shocking Number of Plane Crashes


www.standeyo.com

With 10 plane crashes in the first 11 days of August, I wondered is this unusually high? I decided to investigate and was shocked to see so man statistics stack up. My search was nearly complete when news of Tuesday's Alaskan crash hit the airwaves.

Since so many accidents came up the search was limited to only the past 4 months. Even so, what a surprise to see a whopping 75 wrecks in that short a time.

I thought this was a very interseting observation of the amount of plane crashes of late, especially in light of the strange characteristics being observed by our sun, what with all the large solar flares coupled with the reports of northern lights being observed as far south as Germany. There doesn't seem to be any discussion of this phenomena anywhere and would be interested in peoples opinions and if anyone else thinks there is a definite connection.

I thought it had to do with the theory that HAARP could affect the instruments in planes to cause crashes & the widespread use of HAARP to mess up the weather around the world.

this makes me more fearful of flying.. thanks.
what happened to the plane that made the pilot need to land in the river in DC.

I notice there are quite a considerable number of private/light plane crashes there... Also there are a lot with zero fatalities so that makes me wonder the precise definition of a crash when an 'incident' or some other definition may be more appropriate.

This could be a case of if you look harder you can always get the numbers needed for a point of view or argument.

i say if the plane doesn't land on a runway, it crashed.
but thats just me. there are too many terms for these thing and should be simplified.

flock of birds got sucked into the engines shortly after take-off.

his study proves that the plane crashes rate is higher than normal, but maybe thats just it, its just higher, and we should wait until the end of the year, maybe the crashing rate will slow down and we will end up with the same numbers or very close to it

but, its interesting, maybe it could be related to the activity of the sun ... who knows, but its very interesting ...

the thing to do would be to separate the crashes per month, so we could see if there is a pattern, but thats probably difficult to do, the thing would be to talk to the guy who did the study

And it was in New York, landed in the Hudson river... Now was that a crash or a controlled landing?? Everyone went home that night, if some of them were a little wet.

Also I believe the aircraft was recovered from the river bed as part of the investigation and probably made a pretty penny for it's scrap value.

oh yeah.
thanks.
don't know why i thought DC
im sure if we look into all crashes we'll find many weren't cause by mechanical faults.
any crashes cause by volcano ash recently?

Not that I'm aware of... There was a very close call back in the 80's I think but after a rather dramatic glide with all 4 engines out the crew managed to restart and make a safe landing with a plane that had literally been sandblasted to within an inch of it's life! British Airways Flight 9

edit: after that there was much done regarding safety and volcanic ash concerns, so now there is a very good record and some may say an over cautious approach - of course you will know about the Icelandic one a few months ago.

Me personally if there is any doubt I'd rather not fly! - That holiday is not that important, not that I'm scared about flying at all.

Accidents happen, especially in these times.

It was meant to be... that way.

Go back to sleep, Oh and maybe avoid mass-transportation for a while, at least until after 2012.

i saw an interview with the pilot of the flight some time back.
good pilot saved many lives.

There have been a large number of plane crashes this year.

When the volcano in Iceland erupted earlier this year, I thought that there would be more plane crashes due to the presence of volcanic ash in the atmosphere, and there were.

The volcano in Iceland erupted on April 14, 2010.

Volcanic ash can cause plane crashes.

“If you fly through an ash cloud, your windows will get all pitted,” Thordarson said. “But the biggest concern is if the ash gets into the turbines. They can stick to the plane’s turbines and the engines drop.”

Like this one that happened in Libya on May 12.

Many people do not realize how far volcanic ash can travel or how long it stays in the atmosphere.

There have been several large volcanic eruptions this year. Wonder if that somehow correlates to the increase in plane crashes?
