This is because the RSOE has an agreement with the FAA for incident reports
There are 2 types of incident report
MOR and GOR
MOR: Mandatory Occurrence Reporting. this can be anything in-flight from a loss of separation to a bird strike, but NOT necessarily an accident
GOR: Ground Occurrence report: same as the above, but on the ground.
As there are tens of thousands of planes in the US the FAA will receive these reports by the bucket load everyday.
Even trivial thing but if it is covered by the ICAO Annex 3 then reported it gets. It all part of the self reporting procedure adopted to enhance
Take a look you will see that they are mostly light general aviation private planes.
It only looks weird, because they are not getting the same level of information from other Aviation Authorities.
If you want to keep track on more serious occurrences.
Try this site
The Aviation Herald
If you really want to scare yourself.
I can provide other links to crap that will turn your hair white!
But it's all good!!!!
