Discussion on Air Safety

Post by arsenal4eva »

Does anyone know which airliner is the most dangerous in the history of aviation? How about the safest?

Check this page out. It shows statistics of fatal events per million flights. From the list, it looks like the most common airliner still in operation would probably be the Fokker F28 and then the Airbus A310

I flew several times in the late 70s with my parents from Auckland to Sydney on Air New Zealand DC-10s. If I'd known then what I now know about the accident history of the DC-10, I might have refused to get on board.
