After today's news about Malaysian Airlines and then thinking back about Asiana Airlines at SFO, I was thinking about air travel and everything associated with making it all safe. Think about it, there's the human factor; equipment and it's maintenance (not to mention quality of production), the pilots skill and experience, the ATC system, keeping everyone from flying into each other as well as other factors such as weather and another human factor I omitted..those who wish to do harm. I'm definitely not a negative person, but sometimes I find myself sitting in my seat, wondering if the equipment I'm on will lose a vital part, or will another aircraft come to close, or will wind shear slam us to the runway a few seconds too soon. It's all a intricate integration of the the factors we can control and those we cannot. Am I getting too deep?
