Amazing Aviation

In 1996, prior to the current aviation safety regime, US passenger airlines had a fatal accident rate of one crash for every two million departures. That year, there were 350 deaths in domestic airline accidents. By 2006, the rate had been reduced by 80%, and today the fatality rate is down to one for every 120 million departures. There has been exactly one death in the past dozen years, spectacular!
