In this documentary, in the form of a satellite map, is the 6th of a 7–part series of maps covering the growth of commercial aviation worldwide. With this map you can zoom in on the locations of the commercial aviation crashes from 2001 through 2010. 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, American Airlines Flight 11, United Airlines Flight 175, EgyptAir Flight 843, FedEx Express Flight 647, JetBlue Airways Flight 292 and Aeroflot Flight 82.
The locations and coordinates were obtained from the following:
• Wikipedia’s List of accidents and incidents involving commercial aircraft • Aviation Safety Network
