Since then I have come to rely on the internet and mostly use this site in combination with the National Weather Service sites and Weather underground.
Hey TEK, there's nothing irrational about being afraid to fly. Planes crash all the time. Too many.
Air France had 261 planes in their fleet, until two weeks ago. Today, they have 260. 1 in 261 has been in a fatal crash. Those aren't good odds. Can you imagine if the lottery treated people the same way?
F-GZCP That's the plane that crashed into the Atlantic. The fact that it was called flight 447 is irrelevant. Air France only had 261 planes before F-GZCP crashed. Scary.
