Plane Crash
By Marshall H. Massengale


September 09, 2008

Pursuant to having read the NTSB report and Mike McComb's comments, it is interesting to note that while the NTSB were able to gain access to the pilot's medical records after the fact, the FAA in approving his flying credentials in the first place, apparently did not. Had they verified the pilot's medical history against his application, the FAA would most likely have discovered discrepancies providing cause for rejection.

Incidentally, Capt. Mike McComb is Chief Pilot for Grand Canyon Airlines, based in Flagstaff, AZ. Mike is a frequent contributor on the subject matter of aviation safety as well as on aviation archaeology and history.

Kind Regards,
