Is Flying Really Safe?

"Is Flying Really Safe?"

Wow - there's a piece of social history and a half, Thomas!

And so apposite, too, given how any day now Branson et al'll be inaugurating space tourism flights for the common people, (i.e., the merely wealthy, as opposed to the exceedingly rich).

Mind-boggling, truly, truly mind-boggling.

An enviable piece of work.

I cannot help but wonder just where and whom that plane was going to hit.
