Passenger plane crash deaths soared by 3,700% in 2018

Jan. 7, 2019

"There were four major aviation incidents in 2018

The number of passengers and crew killed in plane crashes increased sharply in 2018, according to analysis by Dutch aviation consulting firm To70 and the Aviation Safety Network.

There were more than 500 deaths stemming from passenger airline crashes in 2018, according to both groups.

This compares to 13 deaths in 2017 in two fatal crashes worldwide, both aboard regional turboprop aircraft.

This represents an increase of more than 3,700% year-on-year, but experts have been quick to point out that the aviation industry remains one of the safest forms of travel.

To70 estimated that the fatal accident rate for large commercial passenger flights in 2018 at 0.36 per million flights, or one fatal accident for every 3m flights.

That is up from 2017’s 0.06 per million flight rate and above the most recent five-year average of 0.24 per million flights."

snip -   Still the safest way to travel.

Passengers boarded rescue plane back to Newark Airport around 4 p.m. AT

 

"A United Airlines plane diverted to Goose Bay Airport in Labrador Saturday night resulted in a lengthy stay on the tarmac, according to passengers who were stranded on the aircraft.

After a wait of about 16 hours, a rescue plane touched down around noon local time, and travellers reported they were transported to the alternate plane by bus after 2 p.m. AT. 

The plane took off for Newark Liberty International Airport shortly before 4 p.m.

In a statement to CBC News, the airline says United Flight 179 travelling from Newark, N.J., to Hong Kong was originally diverted to Goose Bay, N.L., due to medical emergency, where medical personnel met the plane and brought the passenger to hospital.

However, a mechanical issue prevented the plane from taking off again. Passengers were not able to leave the aircraft because customs officers were not available overnight, United said.

The airline told CBC News 250 passengers were on board."

The airline believes cold weather caused a door on the plane to malfunction, preventing takeoff. Happy Valley-Goose Bay is currently grappling with an extreme cold warning issued by Environment Canada, with temperatures dipping below -30 C.

Communication poor, passenger says
Temperatures on the plane quickly plummeted to "uncomfortable" levels, said passenger Sonjay Dutt, a professional wrestler en route to Hong Kong for a show.

Crew handed out blankets, but according to Dutt, they were able to offer little else to assuage mounting anger from passengers."

Five people were injured when a Delta Air Lines flight experienced severe turbulence and was forced to make an emergency landing. 

Flight 5763 was headed to Seattle, Washington, from Santa Ana, California, Wednesday when crew reported the frightening turbulence at 34,000ft, which led to the twin-jet landing in Reno, Nevada, around 1pm. 

Three of the injured passengers were taken to a local hospital and their condition was not immediately know, according to Reno-Tahoe International Airport spokesperson Brian Kulpin. 

A video posted to Twitter from a man inside the aircraft shows frazzled passengers after the landing. A beverage cart is seen on its side in the aisle, liquid splattered on the ceiling and personal items scattered throughout the cabin. "

Maybe we should geo-engineer the weather, and create more serious storms.
