    <p>David Learmount/LONDON Ramon Lopez/WASHINGTON DC</p> <p>Julian Moxon/PARIS Paul Phelan/CAIRNS </p> <p>DESPITE BEING ABLE to report a particularly safe 1995, director of US Army aviation safety Brig Gen Thomas Konitzer sees a need for caution. "The force reduction has increased the workload for Army aviators. Not only have missions increased, turnover has increased, leadership inexperience has increased, and I sense that frustrations in the field are increasing. All the warning signs are out there," he says. </p> <p>It seems to take the USA to spell out truths which others are reluctant to explore even as possibilities. The USA, operating by far the world's largest military-aviation forces, and being one of the few remaining nations to operate aircraft carriers, is the world's primary source of military-aviation experience in all fields, especially in the safety arena. </p> <p>On the other side of the Atlantic, despite reporting average safety performance during 1995, the Royal Ahttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/The-enemy-within-17181/
  • Birdstrike is suspected in AWACS crash

    News | 03 Oct 1995 23:00

    <p>A US AIR FORCE BOARD of inquiry is trying to determine why a Boeing-built E-3B Advanced Warning and Control System (AWACS) surveillance aircraft crashed at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska, on 22 September. </p> <p>The militarised four-engine Boeing 707 was attempting to take off for a training mission. All 24 aboard, including two Canadians, were killed when the aircraft ploughed into a heavily wooded area 2 miles (3km) beyond the air base. </p> <p>The remains of a dozen geese were found at the end of the runway immediately raising speculation that a bird strike may have caused the fatal accident. A USAF spokesman says that all possible causes, including bird ingestion, are being explored. Witnesses say that one of the aircraft's four power plants was on fire during take-off. </p> <p>The accident was the first E-3B loss since the AWACS aircraft were introduced in 1977. </p>http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Birdstrike-is-suspected-in-AWACS-crash-24056/
  • USAF reviews Black Hawk shootdown

    News | 15 Aug 1995 23:00

    <p>ALL ADMINISTRATIVE and personnel actions taken in the wake of the 14 April, 1994 shooting down of two US Army Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters over northern Iraq will be reviewed by Gen. Ronald Fogleman, the US Air Force's chief of staff. </p> <p>Twenty-six people were killed in the "friendly-fire" incident, which involved two USAF F-15 fighters and an E-3B Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft. </p> <p>In June, the head of the AWACS crew was acquitted of wrongdoing in court-martial proceedings. Five others received letters of reprimand, and two general officers were admonished for their roles in the accident. </p>http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/USAF-reviews-Black-Hawk-shootdown-25094/
