A further thought to AF447
The more i read about the the AF447 tragedy, the more i start to think that there is a simple truth behind it. Now there are some hints that the aircraft breaked up mid-air. Well, no matter how sophisticated our aircrafts get, there are always weather conditions capable to destroy it. We have to live with the fact, that we can design our technology to widthstand a broad range of weather condition, but not all. I don´t even want to think about the fears and the experience of those passengers in that situation. But: Life is dangerous, starting from the point you are born till the day you die. We must live until we die, wie take risks until we die. We tend to forget that. And fear tends to give us a wrong impression of risks. I´m still feeling more secure in an aircraft than on the driver seat of my own car.
