Have there been any accidents or incidents directly relating to etops,
and have their been any etops incidents with the B777 or A 330?
How  safe are ETOPS and are pilots aware of the risks in day to day
operations.
Are ETOPS flights as safe as 3 and 4 engined aircraft, except the obvious
that they have less engines and hence less chance of a failure!

Many thanks if you can help me.
