9780071832649: Aircraft Accident Analysis: Final Reports (Aviation Week Books)

Fascinating and factual accounts of the world’s most recent and compelling crashes

Industry insiders James Walters and Robert Sumwalt, trained aviation accident investigators and commercial airline pilots, offer expert analyses of notable and recent aircraft accidents in this eye-opening, lesson-filled case file. Culled from final reports issued by military and foreign government investigations, as well as additional research and resources, Aircraft Accident Analysis: Final Reports tells the final and full tales of doomed flights that stopped the world cold in their wake.

Technical accuracy and details, presented in layman’s language, help to clarify:

  • Major accidents from commercial, military, and general aviation flights
  • Pilot backgrounds and flight histories
  • Chronology of events leading to each accident
  • Description of aviation investigation process
  • Insight into NTSB, military, and foreign government findings
  • Resulting recommendations, requirements, and policy changes

Readable, authoritative, and complete, Aircraft Accident Analysis: Final Reports is at once an important reference tool and a riveting, what-went-wrong look at air safety for everyone who flies.

Featured final and preview reports include:

  • U.S. Air Force, U.S Commerce Secretary Ron Brown, Dubrovnik, Croatia
  • Jessica Dubroff, Cheyenne, Wyoming
  • Valujet Airlines 592, Everglades, Florida
  • American Airlines 955, Cali, Columbia
  • John Denver, Pacific Grove, California

About the Author:

James Walters is a Captain with a major U.S. airline and is Chairman of the Accident Investigation Board for the Airline Pilots Association, International. He is completing studies toward a master's degree in aeronautical science/safety from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and is a graduate of the Transportation Safety Institute. He frequently participates in National Transportation Safety Board accident investigations and disaster preparedness training exercises conducted by airports worldwide.

Robert Sumwalt is a Captain for a major international airline. Having received training as an aircraft accident investigator from the NTSB, he participates in air carrier accident investigations and also in aviation safety research. A consultant to the NASA Aviation Safety Reporting System, he is the author of numerous aviation articles, training texts, and manuals on aircraft operations, human factors, aircraft accident investigation, and airline policies and procedures.

Review:

"I thought it was a terrific treatment of the crash investigation issue. It should be required reading for people who fly planes and cover aviation accidents." -- Carl Rochelle, CNN Correspondent

Sumwalt and Walters do an excellent job of plucking out the important facts [from the NTSB reports] and presenting them in a much shorter format. -- Aviation International News, July 2000
