Just found this today..
thought it was interesting:

YEAR / FATAL CRASHES / DEATHS
1996 / 57 / 1,840
1997 / 51 / 1,306
1998 / 48 / 1,244
1999 / 48 / 730
2000 / 37 / 1,101
2001 / 33 / 778
2002 / 40 / 1,022
2003 / 27 / 702
2004 / 28 / 466
2005 / 34 / 1,050

The figures are from 'Flight International' and include freighters.
Apparentley the '05 figures show a jump as there were a number of crashes in countries with poorer safety records.
Do you think ground victims would be included ? If so the figures for '01 Should have been a lot higher due to 9/11

Any one with comments on this report ?

About 9/11, as far as I know hijacks/terrorism are excluded from accident figures (as they should be).

Confirms to me that air travel is substantially safer, in terms both of the number of accidents and the numbers killed, than it was ten years ago. I don't know whether traffic has increased; if it has, the safety gain would be even more striking.

In any case, the most dangerous part of any journey by air still appears to be the cabride to the airport.  Smile

As you pointed out, the data points don't begin to tell the whole story. Yes, most of the crashes in 05 occurred in countries that don't have the best safety records. Does anyone know if they ever found the "black boxes" for the 732 that crashed in Nigeria?
