Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Airliner Fatalities: Boeing vs. Airbus  (2009 – 2010)

Fire-Earth has been trying to warn the blog readers against flying for the last two years. The moderators have also pointed out that the safety record of Airbus is worse than that of Boeing aircraft.

Below is  a summary of airliner crashes (Boeing and Airbus) which resulted in fatalities over the last 18 months:

  • February 25, 2009. Turkish Airlines Flight 1951, a Boeing 737-800 flying from Atatürk Airport in Istanbul to Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam crashed during final approach. Of the 134 people on board, 9 were killed and 85 injured.
  • June 1, 2009. Air France Flight 447, an Airbus A330-200 flying from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Paris, France, crashed in the Atlantic Ocean killing all 228 people onboard.
  • June 30, 2009. Yemenia Flight 626, an Airbus A310-300 flying from Sana’a, Yemen to Moroni, Comoros, crashed in the Indian Ocean killing 152 onboard; a young boy survived.
  • January 25, 2010. Ethiopian Airlines Flight 409, a Boeing 737-800, crashed in the Mediterranean Sea shortly after take-off from Beirut Airport heading to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. All 90 people on-board were killed. [NOTE; Fire Earth believes the flight was shot down by Israeli military. However, the stats are included in the calculations.]
  • May 12, 2010. Afriqiyah Airways Flight 771, an Airbus A330, crashed on landing at Tripoli International Airport, killing 103 onboard; the sole survivor is 9-year-old child from the Netherlands who lost his parents and elder brother.

Approximate No. of Aircraft Currently Operational

Airbus: 5,558  []
Boeing 10,837 []

Number of Airliner Crashes Resulting in Fatalities (January 2009  to present)

  • Boeing: 2
  • Airbus: 3

[NOTE: About twice as many Boeing commercial aircraft are thought to be operational.]

Percentage of Fatalities  (overall average)

Boeing: 53.4 %
Airbus: 99.5 %

Other Airbus Crash Stats

On January 16, 2009 the Moderators warned: “If you really have to fly because your life depends on it [sic,] and if you are flying an Airbus, then fly on odd days of the month because the Airbus is statistically twice more likely to crash on even days!”

Air New Zealand: Another ‘Close Call’

Posted by feww on January 25, 2010

Air New Zealand in another ‘Close Call,’ Airbus in Emergency Landing and Landing-Gear Fire that Injured 42

Our thanks to blogger TEAA for the information on the two ‘Close Calls’ in New Zealand airspace.

An Air New Zealand Double Tragedy Waiting to Happen

Air New Zealand had a “close call” as two passenger aircraft over Queenstown’s Lake Wakatipu came close enough to spark an automatic warning to the two pilots, the Otago Daily Times reported.

“CAA spokeswoman Emma Peel said yesterday an Air New Zealand Boeing 737 was approaching Queenstown Airport’s runway last Saturday when it was warned by its “terrain collision avoidance system” another aircraft was in the area.” The report said.

Emergency Landing at Auckland International Airport

Another Emergency Landing at Auckland International Airport

An  Airbus A340-200, 60 minutes into its flight from Auckland to Buenos Aires, reported the shutdown of its No. 1 engine, and returned to Auckland, scaring the living daylight out of its passengers. Fortunately for the 229 tourists onboard,  the plane landed without incident at about 10.25pm,  a report said.

Plane catches fire in Iran, injures 42 of 157 passengers

Some 42 passengers were injured when an aircraft caught fire as it landed in northeastern Iran on Sunday, Reuters reported state radio as saying.

“About 42 passengers, out of 157 aboard, were injured when the plane was landing at Mashhad city’s airport,” said head of Iran’s emergency medical services.

“In the worst plane crash in Iran in the past six years, a Tupolev aircraft crashed in 2009 in Iran on its way to Armenia, after catching fire mid-air and crashing into farmland killing all 168 people on board.” Report said.
