Broken Planes & Families, and the number 159

Passenger jet breakes in two! How safe are those planes we ride everyday?

http://news.yahoo.com/cheers-screams...185128270.html

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — Officials say a U.S. team is expected soon in the South American nation of Guyana to probe the crash of a Boeing 737 jetliner that all 163 people aboard survived.

Authorities so far have given little idea about the cause of Saturday's crash. The Caribbean Airlines plane ran off the end of a runway at Guyana's main airport and broke in two. About 30 people had to be treated at a local hospital, including the pilot.

The airline is largely owned by the government of Trinidad and Tobago and its prime minister has visited the crash site. Kamla Persad-Bissessar says she is worried that the accident will hurt tourism to the Caribbean, a region that depends heavily on the industry.

I have a relative who is a current airline pilot. He and his family just stopped in my office for a visit, and I showed him this photo and your post.


He was still laughing when he left 45 minutes later.

No, I'm saying he said he has 12,000 hours in a commercial plane in the cockpit and thinks Frankie is missing a chromosome.

Oh yeah, your relative is an idiot and can only laugh if his IQ is above 190.

So have we answered the real question here? How safe are those planes we fly in every day?

If they are going to fall apart every time they crash, I don't think they are very safe at all. I mean, thank God that crash happened on the ground. Could you imagine what would have happened if that plane had careened off the runway at 36,000 feet in the air? Bad news, man.

I think I'm going to write a letter to my congressman demanding that we immediately halt the use of any runways that are more than 25,000 off the ground until we can be assured that planes will not sustain damage when crashing.

Well I've been in 43 plane crashes in my life so the planes probably aren't very safe.

Shit, Limitless is Flowers for Algernon without the sad ending.
