It is difficult to imagine our modern life without aviation. Every day, the sky thousands of aircraft climb to as much as possible faster and more convenient to deliver the people from town to town, from country to country, from continent to continent. With the civil aviation related to the mass of rumors and tall tales, horror stories and phobias. Today we'll show you only the facts that are not only interesting, but also useful.
There are people who never in his life did not fly on an airplane - and not because they have nowhere to fly, but because they are terribly afraid of being in a plane crash. Meanwhile, the calculations were carried out to prove that air travel is much safer autotravel. The probability of break in the plane - one hundred thousandth of a percent, but in the car - 65 times higher. And the better the airline, the newer aircraft and the best staff, and thus likely to break even less.
Of course, on board the aircraft anything can happen. For example, the plane crashed due to a crocodile ... One of twenty passengers in 2010 in the Congo has decided to put the reptile in a sports bag and carry with them on board. After the climb to the crocodile became boring and stuffy, and he decided to take a stroll on board the aircraft. Unfortunately, passengers are not very happily accepted the initiative of a wild animal, and all ran to the cockpit. Due to the significant advantage, the board began to plummet. There were two survivors in the crash. One passenger and the Crocodile. Another amazing case of survival of the crash was the record. After falling from a height of more than ten thousand meters, flight attendant survived. Such dismal "record" was made in 1972.
Few people know, but every day in the aircraft struck by lightning. Nobody knows about this for one simple reason - all civilian aircraft equipped protivogrozovoy protection.
The most massive air freight was carried out in 1991 during the evacuation of refugees from Ethiopia. Then at 747 fit 1087 people. Remarkably, the ramp has already got away 1090 - right during flight in the sky there are three baby.
You can be afraid and do not fly, but you can overcome your fear and see our planet totally different. The choice is yours!
