After You See These Plane Landings, You Won’t Fly Again.

Posted on Video 17

There is approximately a 1 in 11 million chance that you’ll die in a plane crash. (You’re more likely to die from falling out of bed.) That’s why most people are completely comfortable with air travel, even if it makes them nervous. You should never forget, though, that pilots are human.Humans make errors, especially when external factors are particularly stressful. These landings are some of the closest calls caught on tape. They really make you appreciate just how much expertise pilots have.
