Small plane crash kills one, injures two

Alaska saw its third airplane crash in two weeks when a Cessna A185F Skywagon crashed in Prince William Sound on May 21. The Coast Guard reported the crash around 2 p.m. that day, and four vessels headed out to rescue the three passengers on that plane. The plane was found near Cascade Bay about 20 miles southwest of the city of Valdez.

Is it still safe to fly?

Recent airplane accidents, such as the charter flight that overshot a Florida runway and landed in a river, are raising new concerns about the safety of air travel. Worldwide, more than 750 people have died in airplane crashes over the past two years. About half of those deaths were the result of Boeing 737 Max jet crashes that occurred in Ethiopia and Indonesia. In each case, it is believed that an automated system inadvertently forced the nose of the plane down.

How to know if an airplane is safe

It seems that airline accidents and issues are filling the news lately. Ever since Boeing's 737 Max Jet was at the center of two devastating crashes late last year and early this year, anxiety over whether it is safe to fly has increased. That anxiety had so much influence that various countries around the world, including Britain and Germany, decided to ban Boeing 737 Max planes.
