From The Telegraph, Surviving A Plane Crash:
A US government study found there were 568 plane crashes in the US between 1993 and 2000, involving a total of 53,487 passengers and crew. Of these, 51,207 – or over 90 per cent survived. Even on the 26 crashes deemed the worst, the study found that more than half the passengers and crew survived.
I knew my fear of flying was irrational but wow! I had no idea crashes were that survivable.
