Statistically still safer than driving down to the local convince store. The accidents just occur in spectacular big batches. If you consider the explosive energy of the failure, the design worked perfectly. Had a RJ (Embraer 145 IIRC) out of DIA abort on take off roll twice a few years back, then get called back after deice cuz take off minimums. Half the passengers chose to leave the flight. I must have logged more taxi way miles than flying miles that day. Talked to a bud that flew them and he's like "oh, it's probably just that thrust reverser warning software glitch. "Dude, that movie freaked me out when I first saw it. To this day I look for pried up panels on the wing when I get on a plane!
