Do you fly often? Are you afraid of flying? I for one don’t like to fly often, and when I do I’m always concerned about takeoffs and landings. Recently I discovered that takeoffs and landings are the most critical phases of the flights we take. After weeks of numerical research on this subject, I came up with some interesting facts. The year 1984 saw the lowest death toll in the history of aviation. Only 224 persons died in commercial air flights worldwide. Ironically, 1985 was just the reverse. In that year, aviation accidents accounted for more loss of life globally – close to 2,000 persons – than in any previous year.
Most experts in the aviation field feel that wind sheers and mechanical and/or operational errors are some of the major causes of these accidents – but is there more to it than that? Is there perhaps an occult pattern to all of this? Going back to the beginning of passenger aviation, I analyzed over 70 commercial air crashes. The results of swears – is not intended to discourage flying in any way, but when your life is on the line, it pays to check everything.
Question : Under what sings, months, and days do most airplane crashes occur?
Answer :The month of August, or the sign of Leo, heads the list of air crashes. In fact, the month of August recorded the highest air casualties in history.
The months of June and December, representing the signs of Gemini and Sagittarius respectively, follow close behind. Why accidents occur in these months in particular hasn’t yet been determined – at least not by me – but they do represent the elements of Fire and Air.
When I focused my attention on the particular days of the week that air crashes occurred, Sunday by far led the list with fifteen. A close second was Tuesday, with fourteen. Coming neck and neck for third place were Monday and Friday with thirteen each. These four days alone accounted for over 50 percent of the accidents. It’s interesting to note that Sunday and Tuesday are Fire days, just as August and December are Fire months.
Question : Which months are days account for the least number of air crashes?
Answer :Going back over the last sixty-four years in aviation, only three air crashes occurred in the month of October. And in two of the incidences, the casualties were low. Right behind October was the month of May, with only four air crashes over the sixty-four-year period. As for the safest day, the day with the lowest number of air casualties, was Thursday with only four. And what makes it more interesting is that not one of these occurred in the United States, which makes Thursday the safest day to fly in this country.
Question :Under which number or days of the month did most of the air crashes occur?
Answer : The numbers 4 and 6 tied for first place with twelve accidents each. As for the 4 series, the 4th of the month led the list, whereas only one crash took place on the 13th (1+3=4). Looking at the 6 series, the 15th (1+5=6) headed this fatal date list, whereas only one accident took place on the 6th of the month. The numbers 1 and 3 tied for second place. The 1st of the month led. In the 3 series, the 3rd of the month led. In fact, these four digits (4, 6, 1 and 3) accounted for over 50 percent of the accident dates.
