Our airplanes are falling from the skies. Our autos are falling apart in 20 thousand miles. Wheres the PRIDE?
Everyday you hear about an Airplane or Auto Disaster in America, or somewhere else in the world, but, made in the USA. What happened to the PRIDE in our workmanship? Is there any wonder that our JOBS are being sent elsewhere, That technology no longer lives in America?

Where are you getting those stories from? It doesn't sound like domestic airlines, nor does it sound like the American/Canadian cars I drive. There's about 1 big airline disaster per year in North America. Nobody has been killed in an airline accident (in North America) for years. Airliners & biz jets are awesome... More

Actually, two Bombardier crashes and an Airbus crash come to mind pretty quickly. Those are not U.S. companies...And they are certainly not everyday.

I haven't heard about any auto or air disasters in recent memory. I haven't had an American car in ages, after being burned by very low quality years ago. However, the best aircraft still come from the United States. Aviation and the automobile industry are two completely different universes.

Funny "question". Planes are not falling out of the sky. The safety record, for aircraft, is very high. Most of the time, when planes do "fall out of the sky", it is due to pilot error and not due to equipment malfunction... More

Huh? There has not been a fatal airliner crash in the US since November 2001 (an Airbus). The hull loss rates have declined steadily for decades. Airplanes built for 20 year life are being used safely for 30 or more years. Cars last 150,000 to 200,000 miles, need less maintenance, and are safer than 30 years ago... More

Airplanes are not falling from the skies. The most recent crash is the one in Denver, and no one died. Planes are not falling from our skies. Auto disasters are mainly because of drunk driving and mistakes. It hardly matters whether you're in a Ford or a Toyota... More
