Peter Ladkin has a homepage discussing aircraft accidents which have to do
with computers/avionics/automation/etc. There is also a lot of information
on the Birgenair crash:
- The CVR transcript
- The B757 Air Data System (excepted from the 757 AOM), including the pitot
static schematic.
- Comments and observations on the crash.
- Press releases
