Hi I just saw this on the news, luckily it was a cargo plane rather than a passenger one or there could have been a lot more injuries. It doesn't worry me because compared to deaths and injuries in cars planes are a much safer mode of transport it is just when something like a plane crash happens instead of driver killed passenger injured it is a vastly higher amount which makes it more horrific at the time. I have no fear of flying but I am also always relieved once we have landed safely. Ellie :D

I guess I truly am one of the lucky ones because I can't afford to fly. Stuff like this happeninig just makes it all the more scarier to fly. I don't know if I would have the fear of flying or not since I have never been flying I am sure it would give me the willies at first but I would settle down hopefully throughout the flight but then again I might not and turn into a basket case like Mr.T on the A-Team did.

I don't let these things get to me. Afterall, there are thousands of car accients a day, and that doesn't deter me from getting into a car. If these plane crashes and car accidents were allowed to bother me, I'd neer go anywhere.
