You’re more likely to die in your car on the way to the airport than on an airplane itself, that is unless you happen to be on Flight Number 191. While no more than two crashes ever occurred on any other flight number, Flight 191 crashed four different times since 1972, taking nearly 500 lives in the process. This unusual pattern led many to postulate that commercial Flight Number 191 suffers from a curse.
This unusual pattern led many to postulate that commercial Flight Number 191 suffers from a curse.Some of the plane crashes happened due to human error.
But others occurred due to factors outside the crew's control, only making Flight 191's reputation all the more ominous. The combination of human error and "acts of God" suggest something is afoot.
Regardless of whether or not Flight 191 suffers from a curse, it definitely suffers from a bad reputation, and it doesn't make anyone any more keen to catch a flight. If you're going on a flight soon, make sure you check the flight number. And maybe avoid making the video below your in-flight entertainment.
