19. 1989 crash 285 passengers on DC-10 185 people survived

It was a much more sever crash where the plane cartwheeled and exploded on impact. It was miraculous that anyone survived that crash.

It is the crew that makes the difference more than technology, the seats in a plane are the same seats, the restraints have not changed. Some newer materials that are more flame resistant maybe. But it is crew training that makes the difference today. You just hope that if it ever happens on a flight you are on, the crew is well trained and that the people do not panic.
