ALL OF THE PLANE CRASHES SO CLOSE TO ONE ANOTHER. IS IT RATTLING NERVES? WE WENT TO THE AIRPORT TO FIND OUT. >> BUSINESS AS USUAL AT ATLANTA’S HARTSFIELD JACKSON AIRPORT THIS WEEK. TRAVELERS BOTH DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL CONCERNED ABOUT THE NEWS OF THE RECENT PLANE CRASHES BUT NOT LETTING IT GET IN THEIR WAY. >> I THOUGHT ABOUT IT FOR A SECOND AND SENT MY HUSBAND A MESSAGE AND SAID I HOPE I DON’T DISAPPEAR ON SOMEONE’S RADAR. BUT I WASN’T TOO NERVOUS. >> FASTER THAN DRIVING. >>> HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT GETTING AN iPLANE? >> NOT A PROBLEM FOR ME. >> MANY WERE NOT COMFORTABLE ABOUT FLYING OVERSEAS. I THINK DIFFERENTLY ABOUT INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS. >> EVEN INTERNATIONAL TRAVELERS WE FOUND SAID THEY, TOO, FELT FINE. >> I FELT PRETTY SAFE. YEAH. I WASN’T TOO NERVOUS. NOT GOING OVER ANY HOSTILE TERRITORIES. >> THIS MAN LANDING FROM AMSTERDAM, THE AIRPORT MH 17 DEPARTED FROM ON THE DOOMED FLIGHT. >> F.A.A. DOES A GREAT JOB, AND TSA ALSO. >> I THINK STATISTICALLY, IT’S LESS DANGEROUS THAN DRIVING IN MY CAR.

>> IN FACT, THE ODDS OF DYING IN A CAR CRASH FOR AMERICANS ARE 1 IN 5,000. THE ODDS OF DYING IN A PLANE CRASH ARE 1 IN 11 MILLION. THERE HASN’T BEEN A COMMERCIAL AIRLINE FATALITY IN THE U.S. SINCE THE CRASH OF CONTINENTAL CONNECTION IN EARLY 2009. ACCORDING TO THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, 2 MILLION AMERICANS FLY WITHIN THE U.S. EVERY DAY .
