The reason why the investigators try finding the box is that it contains crucial recordings from the cockpit and data from the actual flight which can help the investigators find out what had happened to the aircraft up until the very final moment of aircraft 101. As the investigation happened, the pilots were questioned the first officer age 34 held a commercial pilot certificate with a rating for sea and FAA first-class medical certificate. FAA records showed no accident or incident history or enforcement action also national driver register also found no history of driver 's license revocation or suspension. Chalks Ocean Airways employed the first officer in April 2005. He had received company ground school training from April to Jun after would he received flight training from September to October 2005.
I will explain that there are many factors that led to the accident affecting hundreds of people. The Flight was operated by Air Florida and it was “Delayed by one hour and forty five minutes due to a heavy snowfall which necessitated the temporary closing of the airport” (National transportation safety board ) but it took off anyway at four o’clock in the afternoon, the aircraft stop working in midair twenty seconds after that and started to go down with no power until it hitted the fourteenth bridge and sank in the Potomac river Killing seventy eight people between passengers, crew members and people in the bridge. The rescuers had a lot of trouble taking people out of the river because “Helicopter of the U.S park police aviation was not designed for heavy rescue work but they were decide to do help” (National Geographic Network) and “Terrible traffic in Washington that day made it difficult for rescue workers to reach the scene” (History.com) .

Two major accidents occurred in the 1990’s that the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) believes were caused by this opposite movement of the rudder on the 737. On March 3,1992, United Airlines flight 585 crashed while on approach to Colorado Springs from a loss of control of the rudder and wind conditions. On September 8th, 1994, US Airways flight 427 crashed while maneuvering to approach Pittsburgh airport form a loss of rudder control and a wake caused by the Delta 727 flight 69 seconds in front of the 737 (Brady, 2015). The NTSB posted in their official reports that both accidents were caused by movement of the rudder in the opposite direction due to a jam in the main rudder power control unit servo (“Aircraft Accident Report,” 2001). Being that there were no flight data recorders on these flights, the NTSB had to make a generalization from what occurred in both of these events and from the previous reports of rudder problem.
The day had come all the Workers were at their stations. 30 minutes before descent and the crew had set a record. They had gone around the world in 90 minutes. After that they had been ready for descent. Half way down the left wings system and wing a=had malfunctioned and NASA had thought of it to be a glitch.
On 12 August 1985 JAL flight 123, which was a Boeing 747, lifted off from Haneda Tokyo International Airport for Osaka airport, some 215 miles away, at 6:12 p.m. After a normal takeoff the airplane reached its cruising altitude of 7200m, 12 minutes into the flight there were 2 explosions. The first explosion occurred when the aircraft’s aft pressure bulkhead ruptured causing an explosive decompression. The decompression caused the pressurized air from the cabin to rush out of the airplane which caused the vertical stabilizer of the aircraft to be ripped off, this caused the second explosion. The decompression also caused all four hydraulic lines of the aircraft to be cleaved. Oxygen masks for the passengers were deployed as the decompression
Richard McCoy was a former Vietnam veteran, a former pilot and a skydiver. Therefore, this means that if he were the suspect, he would have survived the drop. Anyways, in 1972, 3 months after the D.B Cooper incident, Richard McCoy hijacked a plane going to Denver, talking a massive $500K in cash. Richard McCoy gave the exact same instructions as D.B Cooper. However, D.B Cooper left more traces than D.B Cooper, getting caught already after 2 days.
There are about forty thousand airports in the world, and more than thirteen thousand of those airports are located in the United States alone (Central Intelligence Agency, 2013)! All of these airports have added on airport security in the past few years due to varied reasons. A few decades ago, before airport security increased, a person would be able to walk up to the plane gate without needing a ticket or having to go through the security station. That person would even be able to sit and watch the planes take off without being questioned by anyone! However, things have changed and PBS now says “Only ticketed passengers could go through security,” (Villemez, 2011) and are sticking to these procedures for countless reasons.
Sullenburg turns a potential disaster into an act of composure and skill. Colliding with a flock of geese, caused 2 of the plane’s engines to go quiet. Unable to reach another airport, Sully landed the plane in the Hudson River. Crippled by a bird strike, 2 of the 4 engines went quiet and were badly damaged. Sully alerted the tower, that he was not able to reach the runway.
The invention of the airplane would indisputably change the world forever. Its long term effects on our society are nearly unmeasurable but one of the many problems the airplane produced is a connected world. People who could never get across the country now want to do so. The airplane was the gateway to an over consuming and over polluting world. Carter explains that mid 70’s pollution control policies shocked the transportation market and the people.
