I'm interested in doing a thread about the 1977 Canary Islands accident between a KLM and Pan Am 747, but I'm not really sure where it would fit.
There was a big issue with the Dutch government and the accident report that I'm interested in. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm sure this was the crash that claimed the life of our schools 'nit nurse'. Can't really add much other than that, I remember she was a nice
woman though and we had a memorial for her. Useless info I know but thought I'd share
I think you will find that the obfuscation from the Dutch Government in this case existed to cover up that it was the KLM pilot's imaptience that
contributed, with other factors including a radio warning being missed because two messages were boradcast at the same instant (can somebody help me
out with the technical term opn that?), to the disaster.
No doubt the Dutch didn't want to readily admit that the collision was their man's fault.
