AtaLost, I would encourage you to learn a bit more about airplanes before concluding that single-engine aircraft are unsafe. In many cases, multi-engine aircraft do not do well when they lose one engine. Plus, eyewitnesses are almost always known to describe aircraft accidents with a low degree of accuracy. Over 85 percent of all aircraft accidents are do to a mistake by the pilot, not the presence or absence of an extra engine. Despite these facts, it is very sad to lose this member of the aviation family.

Do a little research...it was a Pilatus PC-12...that aircraft is not your father's Cessna 152!!!

A single engine plane sounds like a bad idea. Despite what people say, eyewitness accounts usually mention a nose dive - not gliding safely to the ground.

Can you imagine sitting in your car and a plane crashes in front of you? Talk about things you'd never expect.
