Yea, my parents were terrified because we know people who were actually leaving to France today. Thank God, it wasn't a departing plane.

You shouldn't think twice about flying. Just think how many succesful flights were there today. I bet tens of thousands. How many flights has it been since this crashed I bet the number is in the millions. Your safer in a plane then a car? Why you ask erm simple you don't the idiot next to you cutting you off. Flying is much safer then driving. I was pretty much rasied on planes moving fro mplace to place and always going back to the states from guam, and germany, and such. Hell one time we hit a hurricane. Scary ride but you know what I bet that was even a test to what that plane could do. I saw a show that they tested how much updraft it won't take to rip off the winds. IDK it was a freaking high number and the wings were making a U and it was still flyable like that. The guy said nature couldn't even creat such a updraft to rip of the wings just goes to show how safe planes are.

No it really doesn't make me think twice about flying. In fact when I do get a career I want it to include a lot of traveling. That means flying, ships, w/e/. I enjoy traveling. Been doing it since I was a baby. Honsetly guys think of it this way you look in your news paper see how many poeple died in car crashes. Thenw ait for the one plane crash. You'll see a pattern will come up showing getting in a car is a million times more risky then hoping on that plane.
