First off congratulations to US Airways Flight 1549’s pilot Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III for saving everyones lives with his incredible emergency water landing in the Hudson River in New York and for all the passengers who emerged safely.

They say that you’re much more likely to die in a car crash then a plane crash. What they don’t say is, most car crashes occur instantly or in a few brief moments and when your plane goes down or is in trouble, you have time to realize that you are trapped in a helpless situation for which there is no escape. That is exactly the reason I will no longer fly. I can accept the concept of instant/near instant death or injury, though I don’t want it to happen but I can’t accept the fact of knowing the possibility of death awaits me in a matter of minutes and there’s not a thing I can do.
