Letters

A Letter to the Editor was published in Aviation Week July 11, p. 146, over the signature of “Douglas Engineer,” which was grossly exaggerated as to “lax management” and to the level of engineering work.

We Are All to Blame

The bureaucratic charade by government officials trying to fix official blame for the Grand Canyon mid-air collision that cost 128 lives is an unnecessary farce. It doesn’t take an investigation by the Civil Aeronautics Board or a committee of Congress to determine what killed the crews and passengers aboard United Air Lines’ DC-7 and Trans World Airlines’ Super-Constellation.
