Q21: How can I get a copy of an NTSB accident report?

A:   The NTSB has a web page which contains synopses, statistics, reports,
     and publications related to aviation:
        http://www.ntsb.gov/aviation/
     Accident synopses (preliminary, factual, and final) are organized on
     a month-by-month basis on the page:
        http://www.ntsb.gov/aviation/months.htm

     There are several types of reports available:  preliminary reports,
     which are usually available within a month of the accident; factual
     reports, which are usually available 7 months to 1 year following the
     accident; and probable cause reports, which may take up to 2 years.
     Copies may be obtained from General Microfilm, 11141 Georgia Avenue,
     Suite B6, Silver Springs MD 20902; phone 301/929-8888.  You'll need (a)
     the aircraft registration number, or (b) the date and location of the
     accident, or (c) the name of the pilot for accidents which occurred
     prior to 1978.  [Thanks to _Flying_ magazine, June 1993, for this info.]
