the continents and the oceans was not ignorance
but the illusion of knowledge

Daniel J. Boorstin, Librarian of (US) Congress

quote :
"...investigation constitutes a loop/trap for many, investigators and managers alike. One of them is the expectation that an incident will reoccur, and that it will be investigated and analysed as it was previously." Hughes Chicoine CFEI (Jan 97 E-mail)
Hmm: What does this say about the thinking behind "prevention" objectives for investigations? Ludwig Benner, Webmaster .

"The management of aviation operations has come under close scrutiny in recent years. As we look at the management factors that play a part in the failure of an airline to observe safe practices, we should also be aware of the failures of management that take place in the investigation process." (emphasis added) Richard B Stone, President, International Society of Air Safety Investigators, September 1996.
Hmm: How much longer will it be before Managers start looking at investigation failures as critically as Investigators look at management failures during investigations? Ludwig Benner,IPRR Webmaster Oct 1996 .
