You are much more likely to die in a car crash, or a million other ways, than you are on a plane. Generally speaking, flying is one of the safest forms of transportation.

As we all know, however, nothing in this world is perfect, and accidents do happen.

Planes lose their hulls, they crash, and people lose their lives from time to time. It is also important to note that not all airlines are built equally. Some airlines are much more accident prone and therefore much deadlier than other airlines.
