Abstract:

This study reviews and analyzes the survivability potential of the United States Air Force USAF cargotransport aircraft accidents from 1967 through 1974. The scope of this effort is limited to Air Force transport aircraft accidents where at least one individual was killed. Only the crashworthiness of the vehicle, as related to the ability to survive, has been considered in this report. There was no attempt to evaluate the crashworthiness characteristics of these aircraft with respect to the prevention of injury unless the specific injury incurred was the primary reason for the individuals death.
