People seem like they are somewhat immune to thinking about and focusing on car accidents. So many of them happen each and every day, so we have become desensitized. I wouldn’t say we are or will ever be desensitized to aviation accidents though. Planes are quite large, and aviation accidents are usually devastating, costing many lives. They are big news stories.
Just the other day Harrison Ford made the news just by landing his small plane in the wrong area. This wasn’t even an accident, so you get the idea. Overall, planes fascinate people, but we aren’t ready to accept or think about how deadly they can be.
