...Airplane Accident Aircraft accidents are always tragic incidents as they usually result in deaths of hundreds of passengers. Moreover, even though some have argued that they are avoidable, it is impractical to imagine that they can all be eliminated. This is because pilots, being human beings, are prone to making errors. This naturally means that so long as pilots remain in charge of planes, there will be occasional accidents. Organizations such as the National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) usually conduct extensive investigations of air crashes to prevent the occurrence of others in future. So far, NTSB has established that aviation can profit from more training...
