But what if you are in a plane crash and are lucky enough to survive it? According to the National Transportation Safety Board, your chances in most crashes of survival is actually pretty high – you just hear about the big, fatal crashes more often than you hear about smaller mishaps.

Nonetheless, there are some things you can do to ensure if you are in a plane crash, you make it through in one piece.

    Airplain companies have a saying that they do not let people know, “BETTER THEY DIE THAN WE KEEP PAYING OUT FOR LIFE”.. All of these so called “THIS WILL HELP SAVE YOU”, bull$#%&[email protected]*possitions are ment to kill you fast… Ever rambed your head against a wall fast enough, how did that feel, ever ran into a wall face first??? The only thing going to save you is a great pilot like the one who ditched in the Hudson River, look at the one in Europe last week that ran out of feul and crashed, If its going to happen, kiss your$#%&[email protected]*goodbye.
