Bermuda Airlines Flight 16 has crashed shortly after takeoff on its way to the United States. Work with your peers on a small, self-directed, investigative team to solve a realistic (but fictional) aircraft accident mystery. New information on the crash will be given out each session as you piece together the facts to determine what caused the accident and build recommendations for improving flying safety. Note: This is the same problem that was offered during IAP 2002. Participants are expected to attend working sessions. This activity will be coordinated with the Boeing 767 course; therefore, the schedule for this activity is subject to change.
