It is also said that the death rate of air transportation is 0.003 fatalities in a 100 million miles. People make speculations that the air inside the plane is not clean and is full of germs and microorganisms.
Because the air is recirculating but as a matter of fact, airplanes do have quality air filters that captured between 94% to 99.9% of airborne microbes same as that of the hospital air filters so we can say that the air circulating on an airplane is totally clean. On an airplane, the average pilot who is in control for the flight is two supposed that the other pilot is tired then someone would take in charge.

Portugal is one of the smallest country found in Europe and is one among the three nations in Europe that is located on the Iberian Peninsula.
As we all know it is in the country of Portugal where most of the greatest explorers and voyagers came from as the country has a very long coastline with the Atlantic Ocean. You might be amazed by the fact that in the small country of Portugal, 10 million people speak in Portuguese and this language is being spoken of about 215 million people in the rest of the world.

When we see the news on the internet or on tv, we see very dangerous news that could make us tremble. Here and there, we see hear that military airplanes are floating in the atmosphere due to the sign of war that is almost going to break out. North Korea says they are going to make South Korea a sea of fire. USA says that they are going to make North Korea a sea of fire. Anywhere, we hear news about war. What do military use during the war?
Do they not use military airplanes or jetplanes? Is it possible that their will be WW III? Perhaps! We might witness airplanes dumping bombs and firing seas and lands. Well, these things are just natural in this age. It is time when the trumpet of war is about to sound. What will happen when this time comes? Of course, all people will be in danger. We will soon see hundreds of airplanes on flying to fire other nations and places.
The United Nations cannot also do anything for this because almost all nations are getting ready for the upcoming war. It is assumed that when all these things begin to take place, no one could remain. Even scientists predict this disaster that will soon take place. Perhaps, aerodynamics was not only developed for going overseas but also for war. What is amazing is that people enjoyed using airplanes before it will be used in dangerous purposes. Thanks to Aerodynamics.
Human life is short, sometimes we really cannot avoid tragedy as we do not know when our life will be taken from us. Among the saddest and deadliest tragedy that ever happened to mankind is a plane crash. In the country of Portugal, there is also deadliest air crash that caused the death of many. The deadliest air crash that ever happened in Portugal is the Independent Air Flight 1851 that happened on the 8th of February 1989 that causes the death of 144 passengers.
This plane is having its route from Santa Maria to Punta Cana but due to the topographical error, the plane crash in Pico Alto, Santa Maria Island, Azores. The second deadliest air crash in Portugal is the TAP Portugal Flight 425 dated in the year 1977, 19th of November that killed a life of 131 peoples. It took its route from Brussels going to Lisbon to Madeira Airport where it met the accident into the Madeira Airport due to a runway overrun.
The Venezuelan Air Force Flight FAV772 is also one of the deadliest air crash that happened in Portugal way back 1976.

Aerodynamics has paved the way to find a new world. According to scientist, our naked eye can only see 4 % of the universe. Because of the aerodynamics, brilliant people rose up to see another planets. It is because they have to show to the world what is beyond this small planet earth. It is shown that the earth is just a speck of dust in the universe. It was found out that the earth is the only planet where life can exist. All thanks to the works of science.
In reality, the study of aircraft began because of the creatures that we see. Animals like dragonfly can fly at a speed of 36 miles per hour, mosquitoes can flap their wings 600 times per second, were the basis of creating an engine-bird having tons of weight. The Wright brothers did an amazing job creating the first Airplane ever took its flight. To create an airplane, there are more than 300,000 that are needed to be assembled to make it fly in the space.
Plane was developed to carry people on the air but soon rocket was developed to carry people to the space. Like these, with the amazing work of Aerodynamics, people can find another world. Although scientists say that there is another world out there beyond our imagination, sad to say, we can not reach the place because we are bound to stay on this earth. Still, we can fly on the air and go to another place through aircraft.
