Seriously, Wear Your Seatbelts

16 passengers were injured when their Air Mauritius flight to Hong Kong encountered turbulence, sending people flying inside the plane. 

I’ve mentioned a few of these types of stories before, and I’ll keep mentioning them because for all of the things people worry about when they fly (terrorism, whether a plane is "safe") the reality is that turbulence is the biggest thing to worry about when you fly.  And unlike terrorism and plane safety (which you shouldn’t be worried about, and about which you can do nothing), you can control whether you get hurt by turbulence by wearing your seatbelt when you’re sitting down in the plane.  Yes, it sounds obvious, but it wasn’t obvious to the 16 people on this flight.

Carry on.
