October Bulletin 10/2016
Summaries of Aircraft Accident ReportsThis section contains summaries of Aircraft Accident (‘Formal’) Reports published since the last AAIB monthly bulletin.
AAIB Field InvestigationsA field investigation is an independent investigation in which AAIB investigators collect, record and analyse evidence.
The process may include, attending the scene of the accident or serious incident; interviewing witnesses; reviewing documents, procedures and practices; examining aircraft wreckage or components; and analysing recorded data.
The investigation, which can take a number of months to complete, will conclude with a published report.
