Abstract:

A prototype kit developed for medical teams engaged in aircraft accident investigation provides all essential items needed to collect biological samples to obtain photographic evidence to record the relative locations of victims and their life support equipment to record and preserve verbal comments to communicate by radio between team members and to maintain the investigators personal effectiveness. Two prototype kit versions have been used extensively by medical personnel during field training exercises wherein aircraft accident investigation is taught. They have also been used in the investigation of several general aviation accidents. Two identical sets are being evaluated at widely separated Air Force bases, both engaged in large-scale flight training activities. Preliminary reports indicate that a standard kit would be useful for thorough aircraft investigation by medical personnel. Modified author abstract
