It has been a busy month for news with aviation-related incidents--including crash landings, equipment failures, and deadly crashes--commanding worldwide attention. Aerospace professionals, especially those working on the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) in the U.S., have focused their attentions on commercial aviation and general aviation incidents in:
- Soldotna, Alaska, where a de Havilland DHC-3 Otter single-engine, high-wing, propeller-driven, short takeoff and landing (STOL) aircraft operating as an air taxi crashed, and
