I'm sorry, you are correct. I should have used better search terms. I looked up info using "fatal plane accidents" instead of what got me your results which was "survive plane accidents." I came up with lots of info including some like this which show that more people die in plane accidents than car accidents: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/space/how-risky-is-flying.html which is not at ALL what I have always been told. Now I wish I hadn't looked that up at all.
As well as the info from this website which seems to show a low survival rate (yellow chart) for plane crashes, but I misunderstood as the chart is titled "FATAL plane accidents" - as in, they are not all fatal accidents. I am terrified to fly and my brain sees this kind of stuff and tends to freak out.
That link in no way shows that more people die in plane accidents than car accidents. The point of that article is that statistics about risk are complicated, and people who fly all the time have a higher risk of dying in a crash than those who fly rarely. That's common sense, right? The article also points out that our decision-making is not often about risk, but about perceived danger, which has nothing to do with statistics.
Your terror about flying doesn't have anything to do with the statistics or the actual danger involved in flying. I don't love flying either, and it has nothing to do with statistics. BUT knowing that it is relatively safe does help me calm down. Strangely, working for an airline and seeing all the crazy things that happen all the time that do NOT cause crashes made me feel safer.
