Deadly military aviation accidents on the rise

"U.S. soldiers have been twice as likely to die from aviation accidents as they were from ground mishaps or incidents over the past two and a half decades, according to an Aerospace DAILY analysis of U.S. Army data." An increased reliance on aviation has contributed to the increase in these deadly air accidents. There have been 1,058 aviation fatalities since 1986, as compared to 500 fatalities in ground incidents during the same period.
