Colgan Air crash speculation continues apace

Today's reports on what happened in the Colgan Air-Continental Connection crash last week focus on questions about the navigation information pilots get as they attempt to land at Niagara Buffalo airport. Read about that at this link. 

With so much focus on the Buffalo crash, we thought this story about airline accident rates around the world would be of interest. This version, one of several that could be found online yesterday, is from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
