But I also have a fear of flying.
My father use to lecture me everytime he got on a plane about what to do if he died.
But it used to be glorious, back when you could smoke
The National Safety Council compiled an odds-of-dying table for 2008, which further illustrates the relative risks of flying and driving safety. It calculated the odds of dying in a motor vehicle accident to be 1 in 98 for a lifetime. For air and space transport (including air taxis and private flights), the odds were 1 in 7,178 for a lifetime, according to the table.
