You’ll have a much greater chance of dying in a train or car crash than you will while travelling on a plane, but that doesn’t make hearing about catastrophic air accidents any less disconcerting if you’re a frequent flyer. In fact, you’ll have a greater chance of being finished off in a shark attack than you will of meeting your maker while travelling on a plane.
As an aside, you will actually have more of a chance of dying in a plane crash then you will of winning the UK National Lottery. The odds of you dying in an air disaster are 11 million to one, while your chances of bagging the lottery jackpot are 14 million to one. Both are so incredibly unlikely that you would do well to put them from your mind, saving a few quid on lottery tickets and a great deal of anxiety whenever you check in for a flight in the future.
This is not to say that accidents do not occur on planes. Mishaps can occur either due to pilot error or maintenance issues. It’s often at landing that these problems can occur, which is hardly surprising as this is one of the most difficult parts of flying a plane. If a pilot makes an error while landing, there will be a chance that passengers could be put at risk of being injured in an accident that was not their fault.
