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!”

Storm Xynthia Kills at least 60 in Europe

Posted by feww on March 1, 2010

At least 60 people have been killed in Europe as storm Xynthia buffet the west coasts of Spain, Portugal and France.

About fifty of the victims were killed in France, most of whom were drowned, while others were hit by falling trees or collapsing buildings, as 140km/h winds pummeled the coastal towns in the three countries, causing widespread flooding, destroying buildings and cutting power to nearly 2 million homes.

Storm Xynthia prompted the authorities to put about 10 percent of France on red alert, forcing the French Prime Minister to declare the storm a natural disaster.

Air France said they were forced to cancel more than 100 flights from Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris.

Airbus Catastrophic Failure a Fatal Design Flaw

Posted by feww on June 2, 2009

Breaking News: Cockpit Fire Forces Airbus A330 to Land

Airbus EFIS fails catastrophically when facing unforeseen circumstances

Airbus electronic flight instrument system and onboard computers fail catastrophically in rough conditions

FEWW Moderators believe that Air France flight AF 447 from Rio de Janeiro to Paris most likely crashed as a result of catastrophic flight system failure caused by  a fatal design flaw in the Airbus 3xx series electronic flight instrument system, EFIS, and its onboard computers.

While the system seems to function in normal conditions, the computers seem unable to deal with ‘extreme’ situations that are caused by either the pilot error, as in the case of Air New Zealand Airbus 320 that plunged into the Mediterranean sea, or in above normal weather conditions, similar to the turbulence that Air France plane  most likely experienced en route from Brazil to France.

EFIS manages pilot’s selections and repeats the input to all necessary control units within the flight control system. When the difference between the data obtained from the air data computer and the input selected by the pilot exceeds the “permitted” range, the range within which the system can successfully function, a catastrophic failure caused by a fatal design flaw seems to occur which disables the system and prevents it from generating the appropriate warnings, which would enable the pilot to respond accordingly. The aircraft goes out of control and crashes.

Air France Airbus Vanishes Over the Atlantic

Posted by feww on June 1, 2009

Air France plane with 228 people aboard goes missing

An Air France Airbus carrying 228 people from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to Paris, France, has disappeared over the Atlantic.

An Air France Airbus 330-200 carrying 228 people on which was flying on the Rio de Janeiro – Paris Charles de Gaulle route has vanished over the Atlantic, the airline said.

The Brazilian air force conducted a search mission over the Atlantic Ocean looking for the missing plane, Brazilian television said.

Flight AF 447 with 216 passengers and 12 crew reportedly left Rio de Janeiro on Sunday at 19:00 local time and was scheduled to land in Paris on Monday at 11:15 (05:15 EDT).

Air France announced on Monday that it had no “news from flight AF 447, which was flying on the Rio de Janeiro – Paris Charles de Gaulle route and was scheduled to arrive at 11.15 a.m. today [05:15 EDT).”

It’s not yet known when or where the plane vanished, but it seems the Gremlins were pulling one of their usual stunts on Air France because, regardless of the timeline, both Sunday  (May 31) and Monday (June 1) were odd days the month. See Second Airbus Plunges into Water.

Despite this oddity, flying airbus is still twice safer statistically on odd days of the month than even.
