You will have to cut and paste this one, but here are 150 words or less from Reuters think-tank reporting.
I guess the question they are trying to raise is whether there is too much information on disasters and potential disasters because of the 24-hour coverage of just about anything that will draw a viewer to the tube.
CHICAGO (Reuters) - On Wednesday it was a Learjet circling above Spirit of St. Louis Airport with mechanical problems and nine people on board.
On Tuesday it was a Midwest Airlines plane making an emergency night landing with sparks flying from its faulty landing gear at Boston's Logan International Airport.
Suspense in the skies from airliners with problems is fast becoming a staple of cable news television in the United States, aided by satellite-equipped news crews from local affiliates that allow the images to be shown live.
"Problems like this (faulty landing gear) are fairly rare, but seem more prevalent than they are" because they are now being shown as they happen, said Chris Dancy of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.
"It's like the freeway chases of a few years ago -- it's good pictures, it's compelling and there's easy access to the pictures."
The trend began in September, when the dramatic landing of a JetBlue airliner with failed nose gear transfixed live TV audiences who had watched it circle above Los Angeles International Airport burning off fuel.
Even the 140 passengers were able to follow most of the drama on in-flight satellite television.
Neither that nor any of the other airliner scares since has ended in disaster. Darcy said pilots were trained to handle situations such as when landing gear does not extend as a "routine emergency".
