    Exclamation Another Airbus Plane Crash!

    2 Airbus plane crashes in the same month?

    http://uk.news.yahoo.com/4/20090630/...s-41f21e0.html

    Me thinks the statistics of flying being the safest form of travel are going to be a little tarnished after these recent events, even though it will probably remain the safest form of travel...

    RIP all the dead passengers!

    There was also this just over a week ago when an Airbus plane plummeted towards the ground after hitting severe turbulence:

    http://uk.news.yahoo.com/5/20090622/...n-3fd0ae9.html

    Passengers not wearing their seat belt hit the roof of the plane and suffered injuries, but it was brought back under control and made a safe emergency landing.

    Not good at all, sure if you had fear of flying there is no way you would get on a plane.

    I think there needs to be more checks on planes, most of them seem to have trouble flying in bad weather now days?
