Google Maps Mashup of Plane Crashes

AVCRASH is a new Google Maps mashup created by Aviation Marine Insurance Services that plots specific locations of plane crashes throughout North America. Sort crash incidents by year, airport vicinity, type of aircraft, US state and more. You can also plot only mid-air crashes that have taken place. You'll need to be sure to narrow down your search since this mashup isn't yet capable of displaying large groups of pins (nothing over 20 at one time). A message displays indicating this will be possible as server capacity is increased in the coming days. Each incident is mashed up with a full report from the National Transportation Safety Board and photos (if available) from Airliners.net.

The map obviously creates a sense of urgency for those aircraft and helicopter owners who can promptly ask for a free quote from Aviation Marine Insurance Services while using this mapping app. :)
