This Week's Program:

HOW SAFE ARE OUR SKIES?
A jet disappears over the Indian Ocean. Another is downed, possibly by a missile. And a third crashes over Mali.  And that's not even the full list.  What's happening with air travel and how safe are we in the skies?  That's our topic this week, On The Line.
