Luckily safety has come a long way since 1961. I wouldn’t be too worriedIt’s really scary to me that the entire US Olympic team (every athlete for all sports) could be flying to Beijing on one plane. 1961 world figure skating championships team fight, anybody?
Yeah we have enough athletes coaches etc. that one plane is not going to get it. They’re just doing publicity for one as part of the program.I don't think this is correct. There isn't a plane big enough to hold all of the athletes, coaches, support personnel and Team USA officials. Beyond that, a couple of skaters (Jason & Ashley) have explicitly said they aren't leaving until the 30th or 31st.
