Airplanes are one of the greatest conveniences of our time, but also one of the most dangerous. Airplane crashes and explosions can be brought on by a multitude of errors and almost always end in tragedy. Some of the causes of an airplane crash include:
- Poor maintenance
- Inadequately trained maintenance personnel
- Inadequate pilot training
- Pilot error
- Air traffic controller error
- Inadequate safety precautions
Many airplane crash accidents often involve large airlines, affecting multiple lives physically, mentally, and financially. There are also small airline and private airline accidents that can have the same effects on those involved. Crashes in small airliners might result from problems due to a lack of proper airplane maintenance, or another forseeable and preventable mishap.

AIRLINE CRASH UPDATES
On Friday, February 13th, 2009, the Continental Connection Flight 3407 had taken off from Newark International Airport and was bound for Buffalo Niagara. Investigators are not yet sure what caused the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400, a 74-seat turboprop, to crash into a home in Clarence Center, New York, about seven miles outside of the Buffalo Niagara International Airport. All 49 passengers and crew on board the plane were killed when it went down at about 10:20 PM Thursday evening. Another person was killed when the plane struck his home. Two other occupants of the home were treated and released from the local hospital for relatively minor injuries. The National Transportation Safety Board has recovered the flight cockpit voice and data recorders (the black boxes), but the cause of the crash is still under investigation. According to the Associated Press, experts were analyzing data from the black boxes, including statements by crew members about a buildup of ice on the wings and windshield of the plane.
