    flying today is a gamble, and why anyone would choose to fly is beyond me. Poorly maintained aircraft…a disaster, disasters, waiting to happen.

    • Engine failures happen multiple times a week, yet the odds of dying in a crash remain around the same as those of getting struck by lightning…7 times. Flying is far less of a gamble than your daily commute to and from work.
