Flight secrets reveal why THIS part of the Airplane is the most dangerous

Aviation

Plane crashes are very rare, with flying being one of the safest ways to travel.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) found that in 2016, there was an average of one accident for every 2.86 million flights.

With the odds of being killed in flight one in 11 million (compared to one in 5,000 for car accidents), many have nothing to fear regarding air travel.

Despite this, there are two moments during a flight that plane crashes are much more likely.

Plane crashes are most likely during the first three minutes and last eight minutes of the flight

Plane crashes are most likely during the first three minutes and last eight minutes of the flight.Called the Plus Three Minus Eight rule, statistically, this is the most dangerous time, according to a Ben Sherwood, author of “The Survivors Club — The Secrets and Science That Could Save Your Life”.People are advised to follow the rule by not doing anything to hinder their escape, such as listening to music, taking their shoes off or falling asleep.

After that, the likelihood of a plane crash is much lower and people can relax into the flight.
