Among the investigation reports listed on the National Transportation Safety Board's ("NTSB") website since January 1995 involving fatalities, 49 mention icing as a factor. Based on these accident reports, 105 people have died within the last five years in incidents related to aircraft icing.
Outline the Group System Structure promoted by ICAO for the investigation of air accidents and incidents. Detail its components and the likely specialties of personnel involved. Comment on the role of the investigator-in-charge in managing an investigation from initiation through to the final report and recommendations. As many investigations of commercial aircraft accidents are international in nature also comment on the influence of national legal system upon conduct of safety driven air accident investigation.

Allen added: "When CZH crashed by Thompson I was an apprentice AME working for Lambair and taking my private pilot license training. Lambair acquired YHT (Miss Piggy in Churchill), just before I left Lambair to work for Avalon aviation on PBY,s used for aerial fire suppression.
I worked on the Ilford Riverton Airways / Air Manitoba fleet from ’79 to ’92 along with Bill Fraser.
Bill was with the C-46s in Kenya and has a better memory than I do, regarding the Air Manitoba C-46 fleet.
I was in Shamattawa for a couple of weeks shortly after the incident to remove engines, propellers, flight controls and equipment from IXZ. Every couple of days one of our DC-3’s would drop in, whilst returning to Winnipeg empty, and we’d load up all the parts we had removed. After a few months with several different recovery crews sent in, the aircraft was dragged off the airport back into the bush where the hulk is still today. This would be what one of your contributors saw in the bush close to Shamattawa: "Just to confuse the issue….there was a wrecked C-46 fuselage near the north end of the Shamattawa airport, which is probably GIXZ”. The aircraft would probably have been repaired, if it was a little more accessible, but economics dictated that the best plan at that time was to scrap it. Once we de-registered the aircraft we thought it would be fun to apply the same registration to a C-46 acquired from the States. That aircraft was the one that ended up in Loki.. I think secretly somebody wanted to confuse those British aviation buffs who used to visit our facility and keep them on their toes. These guys, I think they called themselves "Friends of the DC-3", used to visit about once a year and if they promised to help unload, at the other end they got free rides on C-46s and DC-3s! They thought they had died and gone to heaven! Seemed a little odd to us as we worked around these aircraft daily. Whatever feathers your prop, I guess"
Now that I have explained the two types of boards that are convene for aircraft accidents and mishaps and showed the main differences between the two, lets proceed to talk in depth about AIBS and how they conduct investigations.
Accident Investigation Boards and Safety Investigation Boards
Due to the complexity and immense chaos that follows aircraft accidents and mishaps, the United States Air Force has developed a system to help and guide those who respond to the scene of an accident.
Bob Cameron wrote me in Feb.2011:
"The C-47 near Snag, Yukon crashed on Feb. 16, 1950 during 'Operation Sweetbriar'. The aircraft had dropped off some "troops" (practice exercise) on a frozen slough, and during take-off, with a total of six on board, the aircraft assumed a nose-high attitude right after lift-off, and stalled... As it dropped back onto the frozen surface, the landing gear was driven up into the wings, and the fuselage buckled.
When I photographed it in 1975, it was lying sunk in a considerable sized slough, which seems to have dried up, according to Bruce McCallister's photo.
A key factor in the crash of the C-47 near Snag is that it was on skis.
The investigation revealed that pilot Durnin had had minimal training on the Dakota on skis, on a hard-packed snow surface north of Edmonton. At the accident site, the surface was 14 inches of snow on top of slush, and Durnin found that the skis seemed to dig when he lifted the tail during take-off. He therefore ended up taking off in the three-point attitude, inadvertently allowing the nose to pitch up excessively after lift-off, resulting in a stall and subsequent crash.
This is all written up in RCAF Investigation No.2618."
down but it should still be about criminalization of pilots during aircraft accident investigation. the title doesn’t matter that much though so as long as the legal
I have chosen criminal liability and aircraft accident investigation as the title of this paper but i still feel like it is too broad. you can feel free to narrow it
Craig Fuller, of AAIR Aviation Archaeological Investigation & Research, emailed me in May 2012:
"On 26 Jan 50, USAF C-54D 42-72469 failed to arrive at Great Falls MT on a flight from Anchorage AK.
The last known position was over Snag, Yukon Territory, Canada.
A massive joint US-Canadian search was conducted, but the aircraft and its victims were never found.
With 44 people on board this is probably the largest unresolved missing aircraft case in North America.
Family members and interested researchers are spearheading an effort to renew the search for this aircraft. If you have not done so already, please consider joining his facebook page, Operation Mike, at .
This page serves as a place for people interested in this accident to connect, and as new (or forgotten) information is discovered, it is being posted here for all to see and discuss."
