This document was generated shortly after the loss of the aircraft (usually within a day or so) and lists the crew roster, aircraft, and basic details of the loss including eye witness statements if they were available.
If the loss of the aircraft occurred over German territory, a German Kampf Flugzeuge USA [Battle Planes USA] document was prepared by the Luftwaffe concerning the location of the aircraft wreckage and fate of the crew.

In drawing up the aircraft accident analysis form and the accompanying definitions the committee had in mind the frequency rate of accidents from the various causes, the logical lines along which studies should be conducted, and the ease with which these studies can be made from this chart.
Accidents in which the damage to the engine or other major assembly was a cause and not a result are excluded from this category unless the remaining dam age warrants such.

Martin Aubury is one of a growing list of highly qualified aviation professionals committed to exposing a cover-up involving all sections of the aircraft industry (e.g.
Contributing to the cause of the accident was a deficiency in the design of the cargo door locking mechanisms, which made them susceptible to deformation, allowing the door to become unlatched after being properly latched and locked".

 Subject Listing for Aircraft safety - accident investigation and reports
While accident models are a way to organise data and set priorities in accident investigations, at the same time they may either act as a filter in the collection of data that narrows the investigation or they may expand the investigation forcing consideration of factors that are often omitted.
The task of the BFU is to investigate accidents and serious incidents to civil aircraft in Germany and to determine the causes of the occurrences.

 Kano - History of Aircraft Accidents
The aircraft was on final approach when it had an in flight collision with a Nigerian Air Force jet aircraft.
PROBABLE CAUSE: "The accident was the result of an error of judgement on the part of the captain, who, after sighting the runway lights, concentrated on keeping them in sight and failed to make adequate reference to his flight instruments.
In the darkness with no ground reference, the distant runway lights gave him insufficient guidance as to his height and angle of approach, and he was unaware that the aircraft had descended to ground level.

The term is also loosely applied to mean any undesirable outcome, even if it could have been avoided, such as getting injured by touching something sharp, hot, electrically live, ingesting poisons, or other injuries caused by lack of ordinary precautions.
Technically, "accidents" do not include incidents where someone is at fault, i.e., negligent: where someone fails to take reasonable precautions under the circumstances.
For example, a pharmacist negligently mixes the wrong chemicals and mislabels them for sale; a person ingesting the chemicals according to the label instructions has been "accidentally" poisoned, but the pharmacist's mistake was not accidental — it was negligent.

It is also makes me aware that the skies over southern Britain, for example, are crammed with aircraft and it is still amazing that not more accidents occur than is the case.
There may be lots of gaps between the aircraft from the point of view of a car driver, but airliners go rather fast, and can't turn corners very quickly.
The density and proximity of traffic is regulated by rules that cover everything from the number of aircraft a given controller can handle to the spacing required to allow for wake turbulence, and too many other factors to list (even if I knew them all, which I don't).

 Liability - Homebuilt Aircraft Accidents
The NTSB determined that a "probable cause" of the accident was the pilot's diversion of attention from the operation of the aircraft.
The NTSB also identified as causal "factors" in the accident two errors by the original homebuilder: (1) the decision to locate an unmarked fuel selector handle in a hard-to-access position; and (2) a decision place unmarked and uncalibrated fuel quantity sight gages in the cockpit.
The "51% rule," as it is known, is a requirement of the FAA to ensure that the aircraft is in fact amateur-built.

Dramatic instances include effluent wrongly emitted from a plant into a river, which may affect people and animal- and plant-life anywhere downstream; and people who live in close proximity to plants and installations whose operations are heavily dependent on computer-based systems, such as chemical factories and power-plants, and airports.
However some such risks are not geographically constrained, since faulty automatic pilots can contribute to the escape of fuel or cargo into shipping lanes, and can bring an aircraft down anywhere.
