The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) this week published an updated list of the safety recommendations associated with the agency’s 2019 – 2020 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements following the recent closure of eight safety recommendations.
Of the eight closed safety recommendations; four (P-17-003, H-15-020, A-09-092, and H-09-018) were closed with acceptable action taken, one (P-18-003 ) was closed with acceptable alternate action taken, one (M-16-028) was closed with a status of exceeds recommended action, and safety recommendation H-12-029 was unfortunately closed with unacceptable action taken.
An airplane that crashed right after takeoff in Addison, Texas last month seemed to lack a normal power level as it taxied down the runway, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigation into the incident, which claimed the lives of ten people.
On the morning of June 30, 2019, the plane – which was bound for St. Petersburg, Florida - collided with a hangar and terrain after takeoff from Addison Airport (KADS).
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) doesn’t normally investigate minor accidents, but a collision between a truck and a shuttle caught the agency’s attention – because the shuttle was autonomous.
There were no injuries to the seven passengers and one attendant aboard the shuttle or to the driver of the truck in the November 8, 2017 incident in Las Vegas involving a commercial truck and the autonomous shuttle. The shuttle incurred minor damage and the truck had a minor abrasion to one of its tire.
The engines on a plane full of skydivers sounded normal, according to a witness, but moments later, it crashed just after takeoff from a Hawaii airport, killing all 11 people aboard.
The National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) initial report into the June 21, 2019 incident provides no insight into possible causes of the crash. The NTSB investigation is ongoing.

Parents who view off-highway vehicles (OHVs) as suitable for drivers too young to have drivers’ licenses should take note: they can be just as dangerous as street-legal vehicles.
OHVs include all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs), and utility task vehicles (UTVs).
The Consumer Federation of America (CFA) is alerting parents and all off-highway vehicle (OHV) riders to not allow their children to drive adult-size OHVs and to use caution when allowing them to ride OHVs.
