Every time you step in on a plane, you need to remember that you are part of history. Flying with commercial planes hasn’t always been this way. Nowadays, flying with a plane is considered the safest way to travel. Despite you being several thousand feet up in the air.

The reason for why planes are considered the safest way to travel is their evolution. Over the years, planes have developed and evolved into something as close to perfection as there is.

The reason for that evolution is simple, plane crashes. Every success comes from failure. Professional sport players find motivation in loss to be better. That is the same mantra companies have used to create safer and better airplanes.

With that in mind, we take a look back at 12 plane crashes that changed the way we fly today. Thanks to this notable list of fatalities, the airplane industry has drastically improved the safety of planes.
