ByFarrukh Khan

This paper takes a look at the aircraft accident investigations that are undertaken when an airplane suffers an accident. Airplanes are complex machines and there can be many behind an airplane disaster. As a result of international cooperation and the stringent standards of engineering testing that is required in international civil aviation, flying is the safest form of transportation that is available. However, accidents do happen and not all accidents are the result of terrorists attempting to destroy an aircraft. Fuel leaks, metal fatigue, engine fires as well as pilot error can cause accidents. Criminal investigations are only conducted if there is evidence of deliberate attempts to destroy an airplane. This paper takes a look at the investigations that are conducted after an aircraft accident.
