Thanks!

No I know that flying is the safest way of transportation, and it won't put me off doing it(I have to, otherwise I can't go to Dublin!). It just still is a scary idea!

Thanks for the confirmation DrTeeth, I thought it would be false yes.

I do hope they find the wreck. It would give some form of closure to the victims.

agreed. but it's still a nightmare, it hits at something primal, like being buried alive or something equally awful.

the odds are immeasurably in our favor.

but that's also true of everyone who has ever died in a plane crash.

There are all kinds of 'at risk' behaviors we choose.

We play the odds several times a day.

Older people buying Harleys are big risk takers. Their motor skills and reflexes are not what they once were. I gave it up a few years back.

Because of the stats, I can't fault air travelers. I know a lot people that have died in autos, only a couple in airplanes. Of course there should be an adjustment for actual miles traveled. I know a couple of flight attendants and pilots that have flown millions of miles and have not been injured. They do have some good stories, though.

This what I kept repeating to myself as I flew to Mumbai last summer.

Over the Atlantic, over Iran and Iraq's endless, empty deserts.

No wreckage found from doomed Air France plane - Yahoo! News

Now they're saying the debris found was not from the plane, and it's still LOST.

I heard reports today that the "oil slick found was too big to be from the Air France flight" and that the debris found "was not from this plane".

But no one even questioned where it was from...

^ First thing that went through my mind when I heard about the crash. Such a horrible thing to have happened to all those on board the flight. You can only hope they did not suffer and it was a quick death.

Oh yes, I thought of Lost from the beginning, that's why I put it in capital letters. Maybe there is a chance it is on some weird island like that and at least some of the people are alive. It's very strange all that modern equipment hasn't found a thing. It's very unusual for a large jet plane to go down over the ocean, they always crash on takeoff or landing.

Maybe it's the Illuminati conspiring with the aliens and the liberal media that brought this plane down somewhat close to the Bermuda Triangle.

Joking aside, I do really feel sorry for the passengers and especially their families - at this point, there's no closure to be had. Godspeed.
