Technical Notes

This map shows the relative proportion of fatalities during plane accidents that have pulled a plane destruction

Data sources
This map uses data by Airfleets.Net (last accessed March 2018). We aim to map as complete data as possible and therefore estimate data for missing values. In some cases, missing data for very small territories is not used in the cartogram and that area is therefore omitted in the map.

The data included all the plane accidents having pulled a plane destruction. Only accidents occurred on an Airfleets supported aircraft are recorded

Further notes on the data, as well as all modifications to the original data source are noted in our data sheets.
