(The number I initially used of 16 fatal crashes per million sounds too high. I found another source that says the rate is 1 accident per 16 million
hours which sounds more realistic. I redid my estimate accordingly.)
Let's assume temporarily that the UFO crash rate per flight hour is the same as a typical commercial airliner (1 accident per 16 million flight
Fear of Flying
A quick look at this website shows 20 UFO crashes over 70 years which is 0.28 UFO crashes per year.
If we divide the UFO crashes per year by the crash rate per flight hour we get 4,480,000 UFO flight hours per year or 12,274 flight hours per day.
This would mean there are about 500 UFOs flying somewhere on Earth at all times.
Of course the crash rate of UFOs is probably overestimated, but the crash rate per hour is probably even more
