What's wrong with aviation these days ?

Hi all,

I'm really going crazy now... Next week I will have super long transatlantic flight and now we have MH17, GE222 and today's AH5017. I can't have any logic explanations in my head why all this happened. I'm trying to keep myself positive about it, but still... Something/somebody had caused these crashes to happen !

I talk myself out of my fear then the new this morning sent me into an anxiety attack about the United plane which had an emergency landing on a deserted island. I feel like something or someone is trying to send me a message to not fly. I am completely freaked out now. My husband told me to stop… Continue
