comment Safety concerns of travelling by plane
@Simon indeed this was one thing that also bothered me, but I was told that they shoot chickens into working engine during certification, so that the engine should continue to work without interruption. The anti-bird grids are never installed because they reduce air flow into the ingine.

@Martheen 1 in million per kilometer, per trip, per hour, per person living? It is known that probability of dying in air trip per hour is 4 times greater than that for a car. Yet per kilometer it of course seems safier. If you take per person, then dying in an orbital space flight is much less likely than in an elevator, just because less people fly in the space. Yet everybody will tell you that flying in space is much more dangerous.

comment Which (South) East-Asian contries are the cleanest?
@greg121 it lists Thailand as a strong performer, but it definitely does not account for garbage which is everywhere in Thailand.

look, increasing gas leads to a pompage of the other engine because the engine needs more air. Decreasing gas leads to loss of speed which also leads to pompage (because the engines do not receive enough air at small speed), and also to rising angle of attack (which also contributes to air hunger) and to a flat spin. What you to do - increase gas or decrease?

3)I have read many times that this or that plane the last model that can land without working engines. It is not true? 4)Dropping speed leads to the rising of the angle of attack. 5)Regardiung the same catastrophe it was concluded that the pilots could not do anything because civil pilots are not trained to get out of flat spin, it is a Russian specific? 6)It was found that the commercial airliners were not equipped with an anti-spin parachute due to money shortage. The test planes Tu-154 were always equipped.

1)I was told on a Russian aviation forum that a good storm can easily disintegrate the plane, is it wrong? 2)I am referring to the crash of Tu-154 No RA-85185 in 2006. They lost the speed due to altitude rising and got pompage. They tried to increase the speed but got pompage of the other engine. The commission said they had to decrease speed to get rid of pompage. It the pilot was you, you also would try to increase speed?

comment Can I travel to North Korea overland (via train)?
Air Koryo had the last accident with fatalities in 1983. So what makes you think it has low safety rating?
