Russia Is The World's Most Dangerous Place To Fly A Plane

russia plane crash

Russia is the worst place to fly in the entire world, according to new figures from the Aviation Safety Network (via Sky News).

In the last year one hundred and 20 people have been killed in eight accidents. In every case the plane was Russian-built.

Recent crashes include one that killed the Polish President and another that wiped out an entire hockey team.

Given Russia’s huge resources and investment into the industry (check out the money poured into this stealth jet), it’s incredibly sad that the country can’t prove safer than say, the Democratic Republic of Congo — the second worst place to fly in the world, by the way.
