U.S. Airline industry has been in the news recently because of a spate of equipment failures. Praise be no has died. In fact, the National Safety Council estimates that Americans have a 1-in-93 chance of dying in a motor-vehicle crash, while deaths on airplanes are too rare to calculate the odds. Figures from the U.S. Department of Transportation tell a similar story. 

“This is the safest form of transportation ever created, whereas every day on the nation’s roads about an entire 737 full of people dies,” Richard Aboulafia, a longtime aerospace analyst and consultant, said. The safety council estimates that more than 44,000 people died in U.S. vehicle crashes in 2023. –from Internet news reports
