Arrow Air Cyqx Crash DEC12/1985

Wed Dec 13, 2006 6:44 am

Makes you wonder why this is all the information on the NTSB website
regarding the worst crash on Canadian soil !
Anyone have anything to add? Anyone think it's a cover-up by the U.S.
government?

Are you serious? It was a US carrier carrying home US servicemen for the holiday leave

I am aware of the other websites out there that describe the crash. However why is it of the thousands of crashs that are listed on the NTSB website in full detail this crash has nothing mentioned. Don't forget the reasons listed on the NTSB site are the official findings. All other sites as good as they are, are not official.

Thanks for the links. I hadn't heard about this dissenting opinion before--it's pretty interesting reading: http://www.avsaf.org/reports/CANADA/...Inc_MF1285R(DissentingOpinion).pdf

I do remember the crash, though, even though I was quite young at the time.

But this happened in Canada, so it's the Canadian authorites who issue that official report on the accident, not the NTSB.

There are plenty of full NTSB reports on the NTSB website that occurred outside the United States. This is the only one that is not released. Don't believe me .. go take a look.

I have always gotten info from ex-Arrow people about it. Lots of things that the Canadian and US governments deny.

I am very good friends with the daughter of the captain of that ill-fated flight. She is also a co-worker.

I believe differently than the official findings. Read: cover-up. That is my personal opinion. Take that for what it is worth.
