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

Frightening plane videos that will put you off flying.

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.

Thank goodness the odds are in our favor. There’s basically no chance that you’ll get stuck on a plane… but you might want to clap at the end of your next safe flight (just to be appreciative). No one will look at you funny.

Thank your lucky stars and share these crazy landings with others.
