Maybe it is just more are near Utah so it is in Utah news more. It seems that more people have died in plane crashes this year, or at least in the last month. I know of at least 3 deadly crashed in Utah within this last month. Usually you hear of the plane crashes but not this many deaths in them. I think it was something like 15 Utahns were killed in plane crashed in Utah in the last month, 20 total with all the people from the Guatemala crash. That seems significantly higher than usual.
