Hi,`

This info may or may not be of use to you. In the UK, air accident reports
by the AAIB are published by the HMSO (Her Majesty's Stationary Office)
and include such reports as Lockerbie, Manchester (exploding JT-8D, a/c
burned on runway -- sparked off renewed interest in floor level lighting,
non-flammable non-toxic seat covers and air mist systems) and Kegworth
(B737 CFM-56 fan blade fatigue not previously identified due to gaps in testing
requirements -- pilots closed down wrong engine) which may be of interest to
the American reader, as well as smaller largely "domestic" incidents.

Where you'd get the reports from in the US I don't know, but it might be
worth approaching a library as a starting point to get a list of publications
and outlets. At worse, you could send off to the UK.


Hope this helps.
