Accident Investigation Web Sites Needed

Wed Feb 09, 2000 9:46 am

I am Active Duty USAF and a grad student at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. I need your help for research. Anyone know of any good sites to research aviation crashes underwater? I am hoping to find sites that deal with the instruments/technologies that are in use today for this unique type of accident location/ investigation. Any accident investigation web sites (other than the usual FAA/NTSB home pages) welcome! Thanks for your help

I don't know if this can help you any... but this happens to be my personal favorite (and this comes from someone who loves the series "Faces of Death"):

Hope this helps!

This Might Be The Web Site You Want

Click on the following web site and it should take you right in as it is an active link:-

http://www.oceaneering.com

This company provided the equipment for the photography and retrieval of aircraft parts of the SAA 747 Combi that crashed into the Indian Ocean off Mauritius in 1987.
The depth was 15 000 feet.

They also provided the equipment for TWA 800 and are presently involved with Alaska 261.
