In March of 2009 I notated on this very blog that planes were falling out of the sky faster than the descent of Bernard Madoff's net worth. I sketched out the crashes on 1/15, 2/12, 2/25, 3/22 and 3/23. Unfortunately for all of us, the trend has NOT stopped. So much so that a second post is needed. Without further adieu:
6/29/09 - Yemeni plane crash kills 150+
6/1/09 - Air France crash from Rio to Paris kills 220+
5/20/09 - Indonesia plane crash kills nearly 100
Now then, I have no real point here. I just traveled on no less than 6 flights from west coast to middle-USA (CO/TX) to east coast and back with little to speak of except expensive water and indigestion. However it's disconcerting that these giant planes (nearly all Airbus planes I will note) just fall out of the sky. The average is MORE THAN ONE PER MONTH. I leave for 4 flights on Thursday. Someone feed the kitties if they plummet, ok?
