One of the biggest things I am coming away from today with is a better understanding of how the NTSB does their post event inspections. It makes sense, but they get to the crash site ASAP, ideally 30min – 24 hours after the event. Interviews are the main focus, and of course this is critical for getting correct and less biased information. The idea of a post event safety inspection happening 1 month after an event now sounds foolish. If you do, there’s no way you can get accurate, un-biased facts, and an honest view of the units culture
