but pilot suicide/ homicide is just as much a bizarre outlier as murderous hijacking

Do we have the score on this? From my brief skimming of MAYDAY episode synopses, it seems about the same number have occurred. However, poor maintenance, and errors by ground crew and pilots are 10-20 times more likely to kill you.

Easy. You start in London, and head along the 401 East. You then turn off onto highway 403 and continue East until you hit the QEW. Take that towards Niagara Falls. Following the signs for highway 404, which will lead you to the Queenston/Lewiston bridge. You cross the bridge and get on I-90 to Syracuse. Follow interstates 81, 380 and 80 South and East into New York. Or you could take the tube to Heathrow and fly to New York.
