The U.S. Helicopter Safety Team (USHST) records data to measure fatal accidents per 100,000 flight hours every month.
It’s extremely rare for the monthly numbers to ever exceed ONE fatal crash per 100,000 hours. Anything under one fatal crash per 100,000 hours is considered a good number.
However, three months in 2021 exceeded that baseline number, with a peak of 2.08 fatal crashes per 100,000 flight hours in December 2021.
The COVID Blog provided background information:
The U.S. Helicopter Safety Team (USHST) reported 122 helicopter accidents, with 51 fatalities, in 2019. There were 92 accidents and 35 fatalities in the first year of COVID dystopia (2020) when aircraft were grounded for months. In fact there was a 107-day period in 2020 with no fatal helicopter accidents, which is unusual compared to other years. Further, small, private aircraft crash relatively-frequently, even before the COVID-19/vaccine era. But the difference since 2021 – more people are dying in said crashes.
We covered a few unusual stories of plane crashes last year. Even mainstream media noticed the uptick in 2021 and started asking questions. It’s also fair to note that private plane crash fatalities rose from 2017 to 2018. All that being said, last week was perhaps the most attention-grabbing time period in aviation since 9/11, particularly related to deaths. But you wouldn’t know it if mainstream media are your primary sources of news.
The blog compiled a list of recent crashes, including photos of the victims who died and short histories of when they obtained their licenses to fly.
The report also identifies the type of aircraft being flown by the victims.
Natural News noted:
Overall, 11 aircraft crashes over a period of 14 days is not necessarily unusual, the blog report notes. But what makes these crashes significant is the high rate of death: At least 20 people have died in these crashes, and that is not normal in any way.
One good thing to note is that none of the crashes killed anyone on the ground, though there were several instances where that was a distinct possibility.
In normal times, the blog reported, this kind of story would make headlines internationally, “but during The Great Reset” — the term for the pandemic — “it’s a mere blip in the 24-hour news cycle.”
“Small planes crashed quite a bit even before The Great Reset. But there were 347 civil aviation deaths in 2017, and 393 in 2018. Twenty people are dead from all the foregoing crashes. That number could rise to 22. But if it stays at 20, and it’s extrapolated for all of 2022, that means 520 will die in aviation crashes in 2022,” the report continues.
“The NTSB considers anything over one fatality for every 100,000 flight hours far too much. The data at the beginning of this article show three months in 2021 with more than one fatality per 100,000 hours in helicopters, with December 2021 having more than two per 100,000 hours. In other words, there will most likely be more accidents this year than any other year, and most definitely far more deaths as a result,” the report adds.
While you can read full details of each plane crash at The COVID Blog, I’ve posted some of the footage and video reports of these crashes below:
Drum Inlet, North Carolina
Lexington, North Carolina
Miami Beach, Florida
Huntington Beach, California
ABC 10News San Diego reported this plane crash in Oceanside, California on February 24th, 2022:
An investigation is underway after a skydiving plane crashed near the Bob Maxwell Memorial Airfield in Oceanside Thursday afternoon.
The crash happened around 12:50 p.m., and according to the Federal Aviation Administration, two people were aboard a single-engine Cessna 208B when the aircraft went down east of the airfield.
Skydiving company GoJump Oceanside confirmed with ABC 10News that the plane involved in the crash belongs to them. They did not release any further details regarding the incident.
ABC 10News San Diego posted this video report.
The COVID Blog added:
There was also a helicopter crash in Fresno County, California on Wednesday, February 16. Steven Wilson was the 53-year-old pilot who died. Four people, including the pilot, were killed on February 23 when a civilian contractor with the U.S. Navy crashed a helicopter in Hawaii. Another small private plane crashed in Bucks County, Pennsylvania late night. Both the pilot and the one other person onboard were killed.
Bottom line is that all these plane and helicopter crashes are rich people problems (and maybe even some sort of mob hit in Miami Beach). The average American will never fly on one of these types of planes or in a helicopter. It’s the same deal with soccer players around the world dying everyday of heart attacks.
It will take a large commercial airliner crashing and killing 200-plus Americans for anybody to care about what’s happening. Just like it will take a famous NBA or NFL player collapsing and dying on the court/field for Americans to notice that’s happening.
