ABSTRACT
This article suggests that a recent spate of accidents involving freighters highlights the need for improved air cargo safety. At the Air Line Pilots Association's Air Safety Forum in late summer, NTSB Chairman Ellen Engleman-Conners noted the board had investigated 40 cargo accidents since 1984 and that, compared with air transport, cargo has 2-5 times the fatal accident rate and an older fleet. Further, an October 20 incident had the NTSB searching Lake Michigan for a Pratt & Whitney JT9D-7A engine, a formidable task, but a necessary one, if investigators are to determine why the powerplant separated from an airborne Kalitta Air Boeing 747-132SF.
