Aircraft Accident, Evansville IN, December 13, 1977

 File — Box: XII:15, Folder: 5

Scope and Content of Series XII: Accident Files

From the Series: The Accident Files (1970-1982) contain PATCO’s internal accident investigation files, accident investigation guidelines and handbook, and other accident-related correspondence (1974-1982). These files include PATCO’s efforts to contribute to air safety and include in-depth analysis of the causes of accidents from the air traffic controllers perspective.

The later files in this series reflect PATCO’s post-shutdown perspective on air safety, and their efforts to prove that replacement controllers were poorly trained and that their new computers were not adequate for safely directing air traffic.
