Aussie plane crash rate world’s lowest

According to a recent report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, Australia has the world's lowest accident rate for large aircrafts. However, the report also outlines a rise in the number of minor accidents for larger planes. The ATSB has attributed this rise to a change in recording procedure which now includes all bird collisions regardless of whether they result in plane damage or not.
