In article <airliners.1993.570@ohare.Chicago.COM>, cpprg@groper.jcu.edu.au
(Peter R Gleeson) asks where to find information about aircraft
accidents.

What you want to find is your local government documents depository.
Many major university libraries have one.  Once you get there, look
up the NTSB Aircraft Accident Reports.  Those are the reports
which the NTSB publishes after concluding their investigation.  For
major airline accidents this report will be quite detailed, and
gives tons of information about the accident, as well as the Boards
recommendations to the FAA, airlines, and other parties.    General
Aviation accidents are covered in less detail, if at all.  The NTSB
also publishes special reports occasionally, if a certain subject
warrants a special investigation.  While sometimes a little bit
morbid, these accident reports can be fascinating.
