Accident Review Database

Safety Committee (

We maintain an Accident Review database for NAA military aircraft.  Each entry covers a single accident and includes a synopsis and links to authoritative sources (e.g., NTSB preliminary and final reports). The database is implemented as a blog, and is updated regularly.

A summary of recent reviews is shown below; click on any title to view the complete entry.  (Only members who are logged in will see the summary.)

Visit the Accident Review Blog to see all reviews, and use the powerful search feature to find accidents that match your criteria. Again, members only.

Always read an accident report with the objective of taking lessons from the accident to apply to your own flight operations. Remember that the report does not necessarily contain all the information that was available to the principal operator and/or passengers. Therefore, simply criticizing the actions or inactions of the pilot is not constructive or productive in safety analysis. Use your own approach to flying, your procedures and operational techniques, then evaluate the accident and candidly ask yourself whether your flights might be subject to similar conditions that could result in the same outcome. No accident review should be an exercise in “dissecting a departed man’s bones”. It serves no good purpose.
