Boeing 737 crashes into water near Indonesian airport

As anyone who has flown on a non-U.S. airline can tell you, aviation in other countries is quite different. Oversight of air safety is sometimes questionable; some airlines have had repeated crashes over the years as the demand for air travel in their respective countries has grown exponentially. One recent airplane accident in Indonesia might confirm the notion of questionable safety.

Transportation board says pilot who crashed was on drugs

People who take a commercial airline flight have certain expectations of the flight crew: primarily that they will be at the top of their game when they are working. This includes -- but certainly is not limited to -- the pilot using alcohol or illicit drugs.

Congolese commercial plane crash kills at least 5 people on board

While some people in the U.S. will refuse to travel by air for any reason, the fact of the matter is that the American aviation industry by and large is relatively safe. Accidents and incidents do happen, of course, but such events are relatively rare, especially when compared with the giant amount of air traffic in the country on any given day.

21 killed when jet crashes in fog short of airport
