NTSB investigators among critics of Clint Eastwood film, Sully

New York readers remember that, in 2009, a US Airways airplane made an emergency landing in the Hudson River with 155 passengers aboard.

One of the reasons the landing was so successful is that the pilot was so skillful in executing the emergency landing.

NTSB aircraft accident investigations, their relationship to accident litigation, P.2

Last time, we began looking at some features of the process the National Transportation Safety Board uses when investigating aircraft accidents.

A brief look at NTSB aircraft accident investigations, their relationship to accident litigation

Previously, we noted that those who suffer loss in small aircraft accidents should pay close attention to the investigative work that occurs after the accident. The National Transportation Safety Board is one of the primary agencies responsible for investigating aircraft accidents. When the NTSB investigates an accident, it looks to determine the probable cause(s) and to make safety recommendations to prevent similar accidents from occurring in the future.
