Two plane crashes

One crash was much more deadly, a small plane crashed on take off in Alaska, killing on 10 on board.

The bigger story though was the dramatic escape by dozens, or hundreds, of passengers from the Asiana Airways plane that crashed in San Fransisco. No video footage was necessary to highlight the intense escape that many endured as fire burned the top of the aircraft up. Luckily, only two died, one perhaps after escaping.

For me, it highlights that despite the dangers, air travel can be quite safe, seeing how this plane survived a crash landing long enough for so many to survive. And Alaska's incident shows how quickly it can all go wrong.
