I thought Air Cubana was the deadliest year after year. It's strange Air France would be #1 in that catagory

I'm not surprised about Aeroflot. Their planes look like they are driven across country instead of flown.

I was searching for one particular picture but couldn't find it. I did a search on "Aeroflot bald tires" and "Russian planes". Of all of the pictures and articles that came up, almost every one mentioned the bald tires on several different planes. They just don't have the money, or parts to do the proper maintenance.

"Bald" tires are fine on some aircraft.

Not on airliners, and cargo planes. The ones I saw had so much cord showing that we would be going to jail for letting them fly.

Bald isn't the same as showing cord, although in some cases some cord is OK as well.

I'm not surprised to hear about Russian planes. I flew on a Russian-made plane in China in 1988. On takeoff part of the plane, a sign, fell from above me and landed in my lap. I figured it ws a sign (pun intended) and decided to keep it. I still have it today.
