So what is the purpose of that? Could anyone take that serious by accident?

Yes, there are lots of stupid people out there. At least most people who read The Onion know to not take their articles seriously.

There's been good coverage of a couple good air disasters in The Onion over the years, this one's my favorite:

Like the FAA says:

"There is special providence in the fall of the sparrow," Whelan said. "If it be now, 'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come. The readiness is all. Since no man of aught he leaves knows, what isn't to leave betimes? Let be."

Or in other words, sh*t happens.
