C. SUMMARY
A Fairchild model A-100 cockpit voice recorder
(CVR) s/n UNK was brought to the audio laboratory of
the National Transportation Safety Board. A transcript
was prepared of the entire 311/2 minute good
0
quality
recording. (attached)
D. DETAILS OF INVESTIGATION
The CVR unit arrived in the lab in a large cooler
still submerged in water. The exterior of the CVR was
extremely dented and distorted. The front panel of the
CVR was ripped from the unit and was only being held on
by the underwater locating beacon mount. The normal
carrying handle was missing. The data plate that is
normally attached to the front panel was also missing
and never recovered.
The protective dust cover had to be cut in several
places before it could be removed. The interior crash
enclosure appeared to be in good condition. There
were only a few minor scratches and dents noted. The
interior tape reel assembly was wet. Several small
thin plastic reel pieces were broken off and were found
loose inside of the enclosure. The recording media was
wet but otherwise appeared to be in good condition.
The tape was not broken or physically damaged from the
accident. There were no signs of any fire or heat
damage noted to either the exterior or the interior of
the unit. The Dukane underwater locator beacon that
4
was installed on the CVR was slightly dented and
scratched but operated normally when tested in the
lab.

The recording consisted of four channels of good
quality audio information. One channel contained the
cockpit area microphone audio information. The other
three channels contained the Captain's, the First
Officer's, and the Second Officer's radio/intercom
information.
The recording starts at 1959:40 EDT and continues
uninterrupted until 2031:12 EDT when electrical power
was removed from the unit. When the recording starts,
the Kennedy gate agent is in the cockpit telling the
crew that they are ready for departure. The aircraft's
door is closed and the crew request push-back from the
gate at 2001:42 EDT. During the push-back and before
taxi the crew starts the number 1,2,and 4 engines. The
flight contacts ground control at 2008:13 EDT and
requests taxi clearance. During the taxi the crew
starts the number 3 engine at 2014:29 EDT. The flight
is cleared for takeoff on runway 22 right at Kennedy at
2018:21 EDT.
The takeoff and climb appear normal. The flight
contacts Kennedy departure control at 2020:14 EDT.
They are subsequently turned over to Boston Center at
2023:37 EDT. Boston Center instructs the crew to
continue their climb and maintain fifteen thousand feet
at 2030:15 EDT. The acknowledgment of this
transmission at 2030:19.2 EDT is the last radio
transmission received from the aircraft. The recording
stopped at 2031:12 EDT.

The Beacon was returned to Dukane Corporation, the
manufacturer, for a post accident evaluation of its
operation. See addendum report.

0 CVR Quality Rating Scale
The levels of recording quality are characterized by the following
traits of the cockpit
voice recorder information:
Excellent Quality Virtually all of the crew conversations could be
accurately and
easily understood. The transcript that was developed may
indicate only one or two words that were not intelligible. Any loss
in the transcript is usually attributed to simultaneous cockpit/radio
transmissions that obscure each other.
Good Quality Most of the crew conversations could be accurately and
easily
understood. The transcript that was developed may indicate
several words or phrases that were not intelligible. Any loss in the
transcript can be attributed to minor technical deficiencies or
momentary dropouts in the recording system or to a large
number of simultaneous cockpit/radio transmissions that obscure
each other.
Fair Quality The majority of the crew conversations were intelligible.
The
transcript that was developed may indicate passages where
conversations were unintelligible or fragmented. This type of
recording is usually caused by cockpit noise that obscures
portions of the voice signals or by a minor electrical or
mechanical failure of the CVR system that distorts or obscures the
audio information.
Poor Quality Extraordinary means had to be used to make some of the
crew
conversations intelligible. The transcript that was developed may
indicate fragmented phrases and conversations and may
indicate extensive passages where conversations were missing or
unintelligible. This type of recording is usually caused by a
combination of a high cockpit noise level with a low voice signal
(poor signal-to-noise ratio) or by a mechanical or electrical failure
of the CVR system that severely distorts or obscures the audio
information.
Unusable Crew conversations may be discerned, but neither ordinary nor
extraordinary means made it possible to develop a meaningful
transcript of the conversations. This type of recording is usually
caused by an almost total mechanical or electrical failure of the
CVR system.

CAM- 1 does he look clear?
2009: 52
CAM- 2 yup it's no problem.
2009: 56
RDO- 3 okay twenty nine in the front one eighty three in the back one
seven six decimal six on the fuel five nine zero decimal seven
seven one on the takeoff weight six point one on the trim and no
GSIs TWA eight hundred out.
2010: 01
CAM- 1 one two three --.
2010: 09
CAM- 1 ya think he's gunna try and get us out being a lifeguard?
2010: 10
LOAD okay read back. * both times?

28
2010: 12
RDO- 3 yeah we're out at ah zero zero zero two and ah expecting off
here
probably about ah thirty five.
2010: 15
CAM- 2 I think he just *.
2010: 19
CAM- 2 that's your undershoot problem huh.
2010: 21
CAM- 1 * it is
?
2010: 24
LOAD copy zero two and three five have a good flight eight hundred.
2010: 25

29
2011: 58
CAM- 1 well we lost a little bit of weight huh? payload.
2012: 04
GND TWA eight hundred make a left turn on um taxi way echo behind
Carnival and hold short of runway three one right and you can
monitor tower now on one two three point niner.
2012: 17
RDO- 2 TWA's eight hundred heavy left echo hold short of three one
right
over to the tower, bye.

CAM (( sound of parking brake release)).
2012: 41
CAM- 2 can I have the weight slip if you are done with it, Ollie?
2013: 22
CAM- 2 notice that's going to be an undershoot too.

30
2013: 24
CAM- 1 what's that?
2013: 25
CAM- 2 good.
2013: 27
CAM- 1 well then someone's given me the wrong poop cause I was tryin'
to
turn like on the L ten eleven they said I was over- turning.
2013: 33
CAM- 2 ah.
2013: 38
CAM- 1 how much past center then?

there
the center taxi line and whatever it takes as far as -.
2013: 54
CAM- 1 the angle but *.
2013: 56
CAM- 2 as far as comin' out with the main gear you just want to play
with it
a little bit a few times to find out.
2014: 04
CAM- 1 okay.
2014: 07
CAM- 2 but that first turn would have been a very dirty *.
2014: 10
CAM- 1 *.
