At the same region where Malaysia flight 370 disappeared many months ago and still as of today cannot locate the wreckage of that plane, although the conspiracy theory had died down and most likely it’s on the bottom of the sea somewhere.
This time also from Asia, Southern Asia again to be exact, Indonesian. AirAsia disappeared from radar and a couple hours later confirmed it’s probably at the bottom of the sea somewhere, meaning it crashed with 162 people on-board, mostly Indonesian, Malaysia but also foreigner not from the region. Safe to say none could survive this crash. The crash probably caused by bad weather. The pilot last communication was requestd to climb higher altitude and then just disappeared from radar.
So the question raised. Is flying still safe anymore? the answer is yes, but the fatality probably causing statistic look bad now than ever. Even with all the technology we have to today, trying to make everything safe, but mistake still happens, but it shouldn’t happen too often as we’ve seen here, same region and especially this is weather related which could have been avoided since weather is somewhat predictable. So in the future to make flying more safer, should all passengers air avoid flying at all? for sure if the black box is to be located we should be able to determine what happened and for sure there will be stricter rule enforced for all passengers air.
My personal opinion is air travel I think is still safe, but if you want to be safer then don’t book your flight ahead of time, but watch the weather first, then just go the airport and be a stand by and keep on watching the weather, if the weather is bad for the flight path you’ll be traveling and then ask to cancel the ticket or book you with another flight. Now this will only avoid bad weather, what about terrorist attack and airplane engine failure, or plane hitting birds or collide with some objects, including another plane.
Finally I would like to express my condolences for all the passengers and their family for the loss, great sadness, but as many know, after a major hurricane came, the sun will come up, that’s always the case. The day we looses the sun, earth will be no more., but that won’t happen anytime soon.
