Stating the obvious

For some reason or other, unexplained anywhere, the Bangkok Post prints a letter to the editor this morning on why the (old) airport at Don Muang is dangerous.

I love this part:

3. Because of the north-south alignment of the runways, and the fact that the airport lies pretty much due north of the city centre, either climb-out or final approach (depending on the time of year) takes place over a densely-populated area.
The initial and final stages of a flight are, of course, known to be the most risky.

Or, to put it another way: I’m not afraid of flying, I’m only afraid of crashing.
