This paper examines the characteristics of aircraft wreckage layouts obtained after an in-flight break-up and discusses the use of these data in accident investigation. Procedure are developed for the determination of some relevant parameters such as the position and altitude of break-up. The paper mentions some of the problems which may be encountered and emphasises that the analysis of aircraft wreckage trajectories should be considered additional to, rather than a substitute for, more conventional accident investigation techniques.
