Reply To: Bali- Lion Air overshoots runways into sea

Gentlemen, incidents happen every day, but they don’t necessarily turn into accidents that subsequently are reported on.

Travelling to third world countries has its charms, or the occasional scare. The last thing seem to happen more often in these countries than in the first world countries. But airtravel anywhere is still a lot safer than getting to and from the airport. In case of Bali? Every time I am there and I get to the airport in one piece I know I am 99% home, safe and sound.

Until the opposite is established let’s assume the pilot of the Lion Air Boeing was unlucky and the passengers were lucky to escape relatively unharmed. As the people in Bali strongly believe: it’s all in the hands of the Gods (The majority are Hindoes and they have many Gods)

It makes life a little more pleasant for all.
