Air transportation has evolved as we develop newer aviation technologies, and it is a staple technology of the past century. Despite air transportation’s advancements, and its deep integration into the modern world, accidents are still a frequent occurrence and aircraft safety is a major concern (see the Boeing 737 aircraft controversy). We scraped the web for aviation accident data and organized it into a database to allow for easier examination of the data. Using this database, we can look at and compare trends in airplane accidents based on location, plane model, and airline and hopefully gain new insight into aviation accidents.
