  1. MH17 DISASTER:

    – Explain why people might be worried about air safety at the moment?
    I think people might be worried about flying because they don’t want to die. There has been a couple of accidents in the last few months and it is making people terrified.

    – Describe how the MH17 disaster could have been avoided?
    I think that the Malaysian flight could have avoided being shot down by changing their path. Although it may cost more, it is better to pay a lot than die.

    – Explain why Malaysian Airlines flew across Ukraine?
    Malaysian airlines flew across Ukraine because it was cheaper for them and their passengers. It would cost too much to get on for the passengers and the fuel will cost heaps.

    – Explain your own opinions about air safety. Would you feel safe on an aeroplane at the moment? Why/why not?
    I think it is alright to be scared of flying. I would let the flights settle for a minimum of three months before I actually get on a plane to somewhere.

    People might of not wanted to go on a flight because of this horrible disaster what got shot down people may think this might happen again so they are worried because they don’t want to die.

    – Describe how the MH17 disaster could have been avoided.
    They could of went around Ukraine because there were in a war that the air line has had a warning I know that it cost them money but what would you preferred more money or DEATH.

    – Explain why Malaysian Airlines flew across Ukraine.
    There were money involved and they aren’t that good with money so they didn’t want to add that on because it would be really heaps of money.

    – Explain your own opinions about air safety. Would you feel safe on an aeroplane at the moment? Why/why not? I would feel safe at the moment because this would be the safes time to go because they would be checking more going past every warning and all the other thing what might not course death

  3. MH17 PLANE CRASH DISASTER

    – Explain why people might be worried about air safety at the moment.
    I think people would be worried about air safety because they don’t want their flight to be shot down by a missile. They also might be worried about their air safety because the passengers don’t want their young life to end in a blink.

    – Describe how the MH17 disaster could have been avoided.
    The MH17 disaster could have been avoided if the pilots decided not to fly of Ukraine. The pilots should’ve know about the terrible fight/war was happening. It would’ve been better to go around Ukraine because the passengers would’ve saved $66.

    – Explain why Malaysian Airlines flew across Ukraine.
    The Malaysian Airlines flew across Ukraine to save time, money and fuel. They flew though Ukraine because it was a much faster route or path instead of turning the plane around in all different directions all the time.

    – Explain your own opinions about air safety. Would you feel safe on an aeroplane at the moment? Why/why not
    If I went on an aeroplane I would refuse to board the plane because this sad tragedy is making me feel scared and petrified about aircraft. I refuse to look at nasty crashes because it scares me and makes me feel sick. I wouldn’t want to got on a plane because I wouldn’t want to die because I’m TOO YOUNG TO DIE!!!!! I’m at a very young age.

    😥😱😥MAHNEE 😥😱😥

  4. I think lots of people are worried about Air Safety at the moment because lately this year, there have been 3 major plane crashes all over the world which have caused death, so of course people are going to be worried about air safety because they don’t want to die.

    I think that the MH-17 disaster could have been avoided because the pilots and the people in charge of the plane, decided to ignore the warnings saying that they should not fly over Ukraine, when the warnings could have saved loads of innocent people.

    I think the people in charge of the plane decided to ignore the warnings and fly over Ukraine because they did not think that anything bad would happen to them if they did fly over it. I also think this because they did not want to pay an extra $66 for fuel, so they flew straight over it because it would be quicker, which would have made it cheaper.

    I personally feel that it is still safe to fly on a plane, but I am certainly not going to fly with Malaysian Airlines EVER because they have had lots of crashes and it has death written all over it! I would probably still feel safe on a plane but just to be sure, I would check their history and maybe even their public ratings, to know wether they are safe.

  5. Explain why people might be worried about air safety at the moment- I think they would absolutely be worried because there has been already three planes that have crashed and it has been a terrible disaster. I think they would be so terrified because there have been a lot of poor people dying at old age and young age. I think they would feel petrified because we have had a quite few problems with planes.

    Describe how the MH17 disaster could have been avoided- I think the disaster could of been avoided if the aeroplanes did not go threw Ukraine. I think it would of not happened if the silly people did not go threw Ukraine because the Ukraine and the Russia people were having a war and the captains could of not known of thee people in the war would of not known either.

    Explain why Malaysian Airlines flew across Ukraine- They flew across Ukraine because they wanted the trip to be more cheaper than going around it. If the went around Ukraine it would of costed $66 dollars and some people did not have that much money.

    Explain your own opinions about air safety. Would you feel safe on an aeroplane at the moment? Why/why not? I would defiantly not feel safe because there have been a lot of disasters and I do not want to get SALUTED I am to young to die. I would not feel safe because there have been way to much disasters and I do not want to be in one.

  6. ✈️MH17🙏

    – Explain why people might be worried about air safety at the moment.
    Because in the past year 3+ freak plane accidents have happened and most of them would be with Malysia airlines, but more than 1000 planes fly out and in in a day so they shouldn’t be worrying it is 1 in 11million chance

    – Describe how the MH17 disaster could have been avoided.
    They could have made people pay the extra $66 dollars to make them choose a different route but nobody knew this was going to happen and they shouldn’t have flown over a war zone.

    – Explain why Malaysian Airlines flew across Ukraine.
    They only took the Ukrainain route to save money but it would have already have cost $1000 and if you had 3 kids that would be $4000 plus $66 for each person.

    – Explain your own opinions about air safety. Would you feel safe on an aeroplane at the moment? Why/why not?
    I wouldn’t feel safe on a Malaysian airlines plane but I feel this wasn’t the airlines fault after all, many other airlines fly that route they only took this route to save money but it would have already have cost $1000. The stats show there’s only a one in 11 million chance of dying in a plane crash. And it’s 22 times safer than travelling by car. You’re more likely to die from being struck by lightning, falling off a ladder, getting food poisoning, and even falling out of bed.

  7. – Explain why people might be worried about air safety at the moment.
    I think they would be worried because they d t won’t to die when they go over Ukraine. Would you rather pay $66 more and go around or put your life in danger and go straight though the middle of Ukraine.

    – Describe how the MH17 disaster could have been avoided.
    I recon it could have been avoided if they went around Ukraine because I recon you would rather pay $66 more than go through Ukraine and have the risk of your plane coming down and everyone could die or get badly injured in the plane.

    – Explain why Malaysian Airlines flew across Ukraine.
    They flew across the Ukraine area because they didn’t want all the people on the plane to pay more because there will be less people wanting to go on the plane because of the Ukraine and having to pay an extra $66. If it was me I would pay the extra $66.

    – Explain your own opinions about air safety. Would you feel safe on an aeroplane at the moment? Why/why not.
    I would feel as safe as you can be if it went around Ukraine because it is not that much more money to pay. I recon you would rather pay $66 why because you could be putting your own safety in danger. I would not like to go over Ukraine why not because it would be terrifying having to go over Ukraine. The chance of dying is probably 99%.

  8. – Explain why people might be worried about air safety at the moment.
    Because of the planes that have been shot down in this month.
    – Describe how the MH17 disaster could have been avoided.
    It could been avoided if they went around the Ukraine then go over it.

    Because it was quick to get to there destination and cheaper were there got to land.

    No because of the planes that have crashed In this month when all the plane crashes stop.

  9. ✈️- Explain why people might be worried about air safety at the moment.✈️
    I think people might be worried because it has happened three times this months. I think that because if it has happened three times this months instead of three times this year would mean the same mistake might of been repeated over and over. One of the worst things is that it could of been avoided but people decided to not listen to the warnings and that tragic accident happened.

    – Describe how the MH17 disaster could have been avoided.
    The disaster could of been avoided was that they could of went around because right now Ukraine is a war zone.

    – Explain why Malaysian Airlines flew across Ukraine.
    I think they flew over Ukraine because it is cheaper. If they went over Ukraine it would cost more money for fuel and that means they would have to pay about an extra $66
    – Explain your own opinions about air safety. Would you feel safe on an aeroplane at the moment? Why/why not✈️
    I would feel scared even though I’ve been on a plane 9 times and those times I was not scare because there has no crashes lately and half of the times I was young. So I barley new what was happening.

    It could of been quicker to go that way and it might been chipper to get past Ukraine.

    My own opinion will be that air safe than driving in a car because in a car there is a lot of crashes though the years. Cars can have head shots, the glass smashes and dins though the car but plans can do the same what cars can crash like the other cars.

  15. People might be worried because they are wondering that if they fly they might die from a plane disaster. Especially if they fly on Malaysia airlines. Because there has been 2 Malaysia airlines disasters this year, with MH370✈️ disappearing and MH17 ✈️getting shot by a missile🚀, mistaken by Ukraine for a Russian military plane.

    It could have been avoided by the plane flying around Ukraine avoiding the war zone. But that would mean everyone paying $66 extra just for petrol.

    They flew over Ukraine because they wanted to save time and petrol, so the passengers didn’t have to pay more money for their flight. This resulted in the plane being shot down by Ukraine. 👼
