Look At This!

Wed Mar 28, 2001 11:59 pm

First of all Sorry, i couldn't find a good topic, so i had to use "look at this"

i have just read in the newspare that newly relaesed data from ICAO tells that 1046 people died in civil air accidents in 2000 which is an increase of over 66% from 1999 when the number was 628.
I don't understand this, because i cant remember so many big accidents in 2000.
Was 2000 a very bed year, or was 1999 a very good year?

The Concorde and SIA crash weren't that big crashes (a concorde isn't bigger than a 737, and the SQ744 hadn't then many pax)
Accident like sr111 and the Egyptair cracsh were much bigger

Check out http://aviation-safety.net/database/2000/

The Aviation Safety Network i is VERY GOOD website.

The two largest crashes in 2000 were Air Phillipines and Gulf Air.

Thom@s,
both the SIA and the AF Concorde crashes together took the life of just 200 people, thank god not 600! These two were by far the most spectacular accidents of last year, but not the worst in numbers of fatalities.

The Concorde and SIA 747 took two hundred lives, but where are the others? I can't remeber any other big crash. Whas it only small aircrafts that didn't get much publicity? But small aircraft accidents can't take 800 lives, can they?

Ok, I didn't know too much about the SIA crash, so I just assumed it was full. I stand corrected.

Singpapore Airlines regretted to announce that 83 people in total were deceased in the Singapore Airlines SQ006 crash at Chiang Kai Shek on the 31 October 2000 at 23:18 local time.

How unfortunate

Air France Concorde killed 111 plus 3 on the ground I think.

The Gulf Air Airbus killed over 100 pax (from Cairo to Bahrain) and I think the Philippine Airlines crash killed loads also. Plus there were (as usual) a bunch of South American planes that crashed and a few African ones too.
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?
