Transportation Safety Board Begins Posting All Accident Reports

BY Nancy Scola | Tuesday, June 2 2009

One more quick one from what might be worth calling the "open agency movement": open-access advocate Gavin Baker points out that the National Transportation Safety Board has, as of this week, begun pro-actively posting the results of all of its accident investigations to the NTSB website. The move may seem especially timely with this week's loss of an Air France flight from Brazil, but NTSB says the public notice is part of its work to bring the agency into fuller compliance with the federal Freedom of Information Act.
