Comments[edit]

i bet opec is responsible — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.237.132.177 (talk) 17:05, October 21, 2006

Opec didn't create the NTSB — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.218.143.6 (talk) 23:00, November 1, 2006

I just took a sample flight exam. It's nice they provide such services. Keep people informed as to flight rules, etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.152.61.210 (talk) 23:27, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Accidents table[edit]

Why is this here? Do we have reason to list these particular accidents? NTSB selects a number of accidents for a more comprehensive investigation, in their terms a "major" investigation; in the last 10 years or so, there's been 35 of these. I suggest that if we're gonna have a table, it should just include these major investigations, unless we want to come up with some sort of notability criteria for otherwise.

I didn't like that one either, it contained mostly US/airplane accidents. However, I do think there should be a complete list somewhere... Thatmarkguy 12:32, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

There are several lists linked from Aviation accidents and incidents. -- Beland 16:53, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Board members of the NTSB[edit]

Four members of the NTSB are shown on the official website: [1]

Their names should be included in the article. Links to biographical articles would be very desirable. --DThomsen8 (talk) 20:43, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

NTSB Site links not valid[edit]

links to the ntsb's website are no longer valid Where's My Cheese? is what is displayed. 2.216.43.52 (talk) 16:10, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

ive sorted it a while ago(just remembered to put it here)Gregory1132 (talk) 19:58, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Controversy[edit]

In some cases NTSB clearly hiding major fails of Boeing. United Airlines Flight 811, SilkAir Flight 185 in particular. May be this should be included in an article? 91.77.242.66 (talk) 18:06, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

I think those articles do a good enough job, and in the case of SilkAir 185 one of the Indonesian investigators went on Mayday to say that the Indonesian side was making a coverup, not the American side. It's all about WP:UNDUE, making sure coverage is proportionate to the importance to the subject. WhisperToMe (talk) 15:40, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

vehicles used to get to crash sites[edit]

What vehicles, esp. aircraft, are used to transfer the investigators to the crash sites? Does the NTSB use their own aircraft or what agency do they ask usually if not? --Scriberius (talk) 15:35, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
