In this documentary, in the form of a satellite map, is the 5th of a 7–part series of maps covering the growth of commercial aviation worldwide. With this map you can in on the locations of the commercial aviation crashes from 1991 through 2000. The linked Wikipedia pages tell of mid-air collisions, nose dives, disappearances, mountain crashes, take-off failures, disastrous landings, planes lost at sea, death, and the ability of some humans to survive horrific crashes. For example, Tu-134 and Tu-154 Transair Georgia airliner shoot downs, ValuJet Flight 592, Korean Air Flight 801, United Airlines Flight 826, and Air France Flight 4590.

The locations and coordinates were obtained from the following:

• Wikipedia’s List of accidents and incidents involving commercial aircraft • Aviation Safety Network
