Nothing is going on (except of course over conflict areas).

With the increasing number of airline flights each day in the world,there are going to be more accidents. But,  even at that, the actual number of accidents is very low.

This plane accident was due to bad weather.

I think something is going on but not sure what. We will probably find out soon enough.

What I can't understand is the fact they can't seem to solve any of the mysteries surrounding these planes. With all the technology this world has and we still have one plane completely MIA.

From my point of view, something is definately going on. Just what is anyone's guess. In the end times....

More and more people taking to the sky in bigger and bigger planes with deferred maintenance to balance higher fuel costs/ airport fees. IMHO

BUT here's a comparison chart for US carriers...looks like an awful lot of cars crashing to get their fatality numbers up to those of a MUCH higher capacity plane.
