I agree that planes are safer now and so the risk of failure is lessened. These days it is more about the terrorist threat level than anything else, IMO. What is rarely seen is the work that is done to ensure that the Abbey for example - and all the roads they travel on - are safe. All drains and sewers are checked and then sealed, then there are on going checks to ensure seals are not broken. All rooves on the route are manned. The workload for such an event is massive - just not seen.
