    <p>Accident investigation needs an atmosphere of calm to be effective, but the NTSB was not given that privilege</p> <p>With the final publication of its investigation into the American Airlines flight AA587 accident, the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has brought to a close the most hard-fought, acrimonious accident inquiry since the American Eagle ATR 72 &quot;Roselawn&quot; crash. </p> <p>The circumstances of the two accidents had little in common. But the accidents both happened to American Airlines or, in the American Eagle case, a feeder operator; both occurred in the USA; and the certificating authorities for - and the manufacturers of - both the aircraft were based in France.</p> <p>The AA587 inquiry found the probable cause of the 12 November 2001 Airbus A300-600 accident was &quot;the in-flight separation of the vertical stabiliser as a result of the loads beyond ultimate design that were created by the first officer's excessive and unnecessary rudder pedalhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Report-lays-AA587-to-restmaybe-192974/
  • Alaska CVR indicates failed screwjack caused air crash

    <p>Ramon Lopez/WASHINGTON DC </p> <p>An inflight mechanical failure of the aircraft's pitch trim control system may have caused the 31 January 2000 Alaska Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-83 crash, according to information presented at a public hearing on the accident. The cockpit voice recorder (CVR) has yielded clues not revealed before. </p> <p>On the initial day of the four-day hearing, the US National Transportation Safety Board released the CVR transcript covering the last 30 minutes of the flight. Together with flight data recorder information, it points to an in-flight failure of the screwjack mechanism that controls the angle of incidence of the horizontal stabiliser and limits its range of motion. </p> <p>Much of the hearing concerned the design and maintenance of the screwjack assembly. The Federal Aviation Administration does not believe that a re-design is necessary since the event may be isolated. Meanwhile, Safety Board investigators are testing whether incompatible greahttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Alaska-CVR-indicates-failed-screwjack-caused-air-crash-123950/
