CEOs are dying in private plane crashesmore often than you mightthink. Why? And what does it have to do with Houston? Well, the connection lies in the oil and gas industry, and industries like it, and how the personalities of CEOs which allow them to be calculated risk-takers also lead some of them to be risky in other aspects of their lives.
