There are a few publications which state that one should sit at the back of a plane to increase one's odds of surviving a crash. Is this based on urban legend ? Is this based on statistics for a certain type of aircraft ? Is this only for a certain type of accident ? Is this based on scientific studies of aircraft structures ? Or is this actually true for all types of aircraft and all types of crashes ? Would the very end of the plane be safer than sitting just behind the wings ?
