Praying on a plane

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

FFS! I would be happy to give you some worthwhile reading material. You are in serious need or I am a victim of your sarcasm.
That was ... how you say? Tripe.

Umm, not a big worry really. I think Cambodian minivan/bus drivers are probably more dangerous. Source: myself and everyone else. :mrgreen:
From above link:
Although the study found an increase in drug use among the pilots that were tested, there has not been a corresponding increase in the number of accidents in which impairment was determined to be a cause or contributing factor to the accident, according to the NTSB. This figure has remained at about 3% of fatal civil aviation accidents and has not made a marked increase since 1990.

If all this is so unusual where did the expression " on a wing and a prayer " come from?
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

Agreed

I would have thought this was a worrying statistic... 3% of accidents.. its not like a single car accident, only driver hurt. When a pilot has an accident it is usually a big hunk of metal and burning fuel involved with multiple persons on board and sometimes on the ground. =@
