    Missed point ? Why are you even replying directly to me ? I didn't quote you and what I posted wasn't in response to what you said. I was just postin' my thoughts on the subject.

    Not everything is an argument, man. All I posted was an opinion and wasn't directed at anyone specific.

    I feel for the families and especially feel sorry for all the infants and children...

    Statistically speaking you're more likely to die if you are actually in a plane crash - but also statistically speaking you are more likely to die from just about anything else. Flying IS the safest way to travel, if you don't "feel" that way or you don't believe it you have that right - but that doesn't make you correct and seems pretty foolish to believe flying is more dangerous.

    That's why news are bad for people. It creates fear in people's life. News show bad things so the people watching them get paranoid. It is a bad mentality.

    I read news on the net from time to time but although it is sad, these things rarely happen. It is made to strike fear into people and they go crazy about that. People rarely think positively these days and they can only see the negative side of things.

    I'm going to travel this summer, my parents tried to scare me, they realize it didn't work. They were like, have you been watching the news? Look what happened to XYZ!". If they wanna think like that and live their life in fear, fine. But remember, you can die just from going out of your house and get shot in the head. Who knows?

    I think positively about the good experience I will have, not the bad one. If anything happens, I will just come back stronger. I'm not scared. Most places are just as safe as your area where you live.

    News have no effect on me, I don't feel like living my life in fear and cause unnecessary stress.

    I don't even know why people think like that at all. Think about positive things instead, like... hey it's gonna be an awesome experience. You shouldn't even be thinking about the bad things that will happen to you, unnecessary stress.

    Go jump off of a cliff, I heard you're more likely to die in your home then jumping off a cliff.

    RiP the passengers, that's the bad thing about airplanes, you can have up to 300+ victims in one go.

    it's good to know that at least there are some survivors this time.

    i suffer from a severe flying phobia, mind i've boarded planes many many times since i was a kid, but still i'm scared to death and i always must pop an extra valium dose otherwise i go into panic attack mode, one time i ran out of the plane and simply went back home, simply put i never boarded a plane since nor planning to in the future unless its a matter of life or death.

    it's not fear of death at all cause i'm not scared of dying, i'm scared of heights and also claustrophobic so this must have something to do with my fear of flying, even though i know it's supposed to be the safest transportation method in the world.

    i just hate those fecking things, just thinking about them gives me tachycardia. :eek:

    I travel quite alot by plane, from 2h to 8h trips depending on when I'm heading and I must say everytime I do it, its thrilling and exciting!

    This year, on easter vacations I took 2 friends to London since they had never been there and one of them is extremely retarded and kept saying we would die or whatever, I just felt like punching him in the face eventhough he was "joking".

    My father was a parachute trooper back in his youngster times and he is scared to death of traveling by plane. He gets extremely nervous to the point he has stomach issues! He has to do it every year , atleast twice (8h+ trips) due to work but still!

    All in all, traveling by plane is for sure the safest way to travel considering the Ammount of Passangers it carries / travel times vs Ammount of accidents that happen but the downside of it, as someone already mentioned is, if a severe accident happen, theres gonna be a huge ammount of victims.

    The thing that bothers me about this is, some of the accidents happen during Take off / Landings and are related to either flawed airport runways or something of the like, yet close to nothing is done regarding it.

    Oh well..

    Can we keep the bickering out of this thread? I feel like it's extraordinarily disrespectful to the victims of this crash and their families/friends.

    It's a sad tragedy - second mass-casualty airplane crash recently, the other was in Africa, I believe. I've flown on planes many, many times, but I always have a fear in my mind of something like this happening.

    I love flying!
    Seriously, can't get enough of it. There is nothing neater then the window seat behind the wings during takeoffs & landings. I LOVE watching the flaps extend, slats open, all the mechanical parts moving around. Seeing the eng clambshells going in reverse is cool as heck too on landing. I have flown in many types of small & large aircraft & always felt perfectly safe, even flew in a ultra lite once. Talk about a rush!
    Accidents on aircraft are far & few but when one does happen of course its usually terminal for everyone & tragic. They are built light for flight, not for crashing & surviving.
    And they aren't a luxery if your considering a trip that's thousands of miles over the ocean away. Ships are painfully slow..........................Anyone who dosen't fly dosen't travel far quickly much either, except over land in a hi speed train, only other choice there. Flight is here to stay so enjoy the ride!

    Sad how this thread to mourn all the dead of this disaster is mostly just a stupid argument about statistics :/

    It's the chances of surviving an incident like this they were talking about.

    You are less likely to survive a plane crash than a car crash. Planes going down is sadly growing in number.
