Full Accident Reports

Tue Dec 16, 2003 9:28 am

Hi folks,

I'm just wondering where could I read full reports of accidents involving civil aircraft? For example this is the kind of website I am looking for, with full official reports of accidents.

http://www.taic.org.nz/aviation/index.html

I've searched the web but I can hardly find anything similar to this. I'm quite interested to read full reports like this.

Thanks a lot guys!

Happy flying,

alvin

Hello Mr.BA.

Here's the method I use.

1). Go to www.airports.com

http://www.airports.com

2). Type ntsb into the search window and click the search button.

3). Click on .... National Transportation Safety Board, which appears on the next page.

4). Click on the blue Aviation box at the top of the next page.

5). Click on ...... Accident Database & Synopses, at the top of the next page.

6). At the very bottom of the next page, click on .... Switch to Monthly List.

7). "THERE YOU GO", now you can click on any month on the list and see all the NTSB's "preliminary" reports. They usually take about 4+ days before they're listed, depending on the depth of the investigation.

These are 90% GA accident & incident reports. There are Commercial Airliner and corporate aircraft reports as well. If the NTSB investgates it, it will end up on this site.

As time goes by and the investigations are completed, a FINAL report is listed.

It's a great site to learn from. I sure do!  Big thumbs up

I hope this helps.

Sometimes reports aren't available online - only in printed form (unless they've been scanned).

Mr Spaceman, thanks for the great info! I read lots of reports in magazines but this is fantastic!

Mr.BA, once you click on a month out of the list, simply click on the blue word PREL to the left and the report will come up.

Thanks again!

For full NTSB reports from 1967-2003, OPNLguy says check out:

http://amelia.db.erau.edu/ec/ntsbaar.htm

Note that the years listed refer to when the NTSB report was issued, not the date of he accident. The NTSB report date may (in a few cases) be the same year as the accident, but is most often 1-2 years behind the accident date.
