There have been two major plane crashes with only one survivor since the first of June. The planes’ destination, France, wasn’t the only thing they had in common: both planes were Airbuses. A third Airbus plane almost joined this trend on June 9, 2009.
Flying from San Fransisco to Tokyo, the Northwest flight reported an engine failure shortly after takeoff. It was able to return to San Fransisco safely and there were no casualties reported for the 194 on board.
Despite the safe landing, the question needs to be asked, are Airbus planes safe? I don’t have the definitive answer but think someone should be looking into it.
