before 1995 it was said in praise of irish rugby

"they don't whine when they lose, or gloat when they win"

I think that's the crux of the matter: there's no doubt that aircraft's reliability, handling characteristics, safety systems, and also pilot's training have all improved steadily over the years, but it's the systems in particular which present something of a double-edged sword.
