4 incidents and over 7000 flights in the air at any given time over the course of the day, pretty good I’d say.

I thought these were pretty bad

Stuff happens, car accidents happen much more frequently and I don’t see people worrying. Aviation is an industry where the pictures look really dramatic whenever something goes wrong, so there is more of a magnifying glass over everything. It’s not that bad if you put things into perspective.

Keep in mind lightning is not an incident its very standard.

for that bird strike, i thought the skin especially the nose can take up bird strike. it should be stronger than that

Poor Ecuador. That aircraft was probably bringing supplies.

It’s more common than thought, it’s a non-event. All aircraft are built with that eventuality in mind, their structure allows for the electricity to pass through and be discharged. The passengers might be a little alarmed.
