This is ridiculous. I was on a Hawk Air flight (great service and people by the way) from Terrace, BC back to Vancouver last month, and this was the headline on the paper they distributed to all the passengers aboard the Dash 8 Prop.
The headline of the Vancouver Sun read "B.C. leads Canada in plane crash deaths".
Perfect plane reading.
The story went on to explain it was mostly small planes in mountainous regions. How comforting.
So I looked out the window and made sure we had a good place to land if something went wrong.
