Harrison Ford crashed his very expensive plane on a golf course yesterday. I also fly planes. Mine are not quite as expensive as his, but the basics are the same. Keep the wings generating lift and you should be fine. Engine quits? No problem, just land on the nearest golf course. Preferably close to the 19th hole. Who wouldn’t want a drink after that?
So many people think flying is dangerous. It’s not. We just hear about plane crashes a lot in the news because they are mysterious to news stations and make for good TV when one goes missing.
Here are some crashes where people survived.
AIR FRANCE 358 | TORONTO | No Fatalities
ASIANA 214 | SAN FRANCISCO | 3 Fatalities
ETHIOPIAN 961 | COMOROS | 50 Survivors
US AIRWAYS 1549 | HUDSON RIVER | No Fatalities
Just some crazy skilled guy landing on a highway
