Rocky Mountain News (Denver) investigates the safety of regional airlines; the smaller planes commonly flown by regional airlines have an accident rate of 1.43 per 100,000 flights, compared to 0.43 per 100,000 flights for aircraft with more than 30 seats; pilot error and insufficient regulation add to the problem.
