High Amount Of Plane Crashes

Is it just me or does it seem like there have been a lot of plane crashes lately. There have been 4 international crashes in the last 2 weeks. Plus I have heard of a lot of small general aviation planes crashing more then usual. Anyone notice this to? I think it's weird.

They are showing this video on board now. It explains some things and talks about the new airlines. It's very interesting and exciting.

RE: Why Recent View Of Kai Tak Airport So Popular

How do they have a golf course on the runway now. It looks at most to be one hole. Is it just a driving range?
