So, if you're still interested, here's finally the list I promised to
post some time ago. Sorry that it took so long, but from time to time
_even students_ have to do other things than hang around on the net ;-).

The list is taken from the april 7th issue (No. 1513) of Air & Cosmos/
Aviation International, page 15. The source they gave for their information
is Boeing.

The numbers represent the ratio: accidents of commercial jet aircraft
between 1958 and 1993 per one million departures (and per aircraft type).
As they say, they didn't count accidents due to manipulation or military
action. They say also that the global yearly rate of accidents per million
departures has been stable since the 70's.
