There is nothing unusual about the number of accidents the past 6 months. In fact there are have probably been less accidents the past 6 months then the same time period last year. Everything is much more hyped and jumped on by the media since 9/11. Therefore we are seeing the "It SEEMS we are having more accidents" effect when we really are not.

The Tu154 would have been reported as well, I mean, it was shot down after all. Crossair too, they´re basically a major country´s flag carrier by now. And about the IL18 and Enimex crashes - how much attention did those get? Two lines in the papers´ "misc." pages.
I wouldn´t count the Lear, btw, that´s general aviation, and they fall from the sky like flies - it´s not an airliner in any case.
