Abstract:

The publication contains descriptions, photographs, and drawings of Army aircraft design and engineering inadequacies. This information is intended solely to impress engineers and designers with Army aircraft design inadequacies and to illustrate the cause factor role these inadequacies play in Army aircraft accident frequency and severity. Safety engineering with its emphasis on human factors must be introduced in the design stage and not on the flight line after production has been initiated. As shown in the report, numerous Army aircraft accidents have been caused by a combination of design inadequacies, improper military specifications, and human error. Author
