Yes, it is horrible. However, the size of an airplane has nothing to do with whether or not it will crash.
I agree this is horrible! However please remember all of the car accidents you hear and we don't stop driving.
I certainly don't mean to make light of this but I was in an airplane crash several years ago. I was unconsious for a long time but in Oct when I cruise, "I'm" flying! The plane we crashed in was a small Cessna and yes, I have been back in another one.
I also have had a car accident but I'm driving to the airport. Please, don't ever let fear take over your life.
