If we look into the past the industry of moving men and material across the ocean has been a hazardous business often with losses on both sides. A turbulent sea or a dangerous sky always made it uncertain and difficult to move long distances. For the last 50 years or so, technological changes have been made and we can safely say that the skies or the oceans are no longer unsafe for us. Though accidents do happen sometimes, enough preventive measures and precautions have been introduced so that we can feel safe with life or material overseas or travelling thousands of feet in the sky.
