A big uptick in accidents is something in common. Is there something wrong with the technology or parts? Are the pilots overstressed for some reason? Just because they can't find the common factor does not mean it doesn't exist, they have to open their minds and broaden their view of things.

"Anonymously"--- that's a joke.
My expertise was NOT aviation or anything near that, when I was active duty, so I know ZERO about it, EXCEPT that I'm not surprised one bit that the Pentagon and Air Force higher ups are clueless about reality. And I know from experience that anonymity in a command does not exist. Doesn't mattter what they tell you or what power point they shove down your throat at an all-hands GMT about it; the identity of the person who made the "anonymous" report will make its way up the chain of command before that person is even out of the building.
