ANC22FA041 – B407 Tail Boom Separation Investigation Update
About this FAASafety Wings Course
Air Safety Investigators will discuss the urgent safety issues and recommendations during its ongoing investigation of the June 8 crash of a Bell 407 near Kalea, Hawaii, in which the tail boom separated from the fuselage during an air tour flight.
We are concerned that there may be additional Bell 407 helicopters with missing or fractured tail boom attachment hardware, and the potential for catastrophic failure warrants immediate and mandatory action.
This course will discuss the urgent concerns and recommendations made by the NTSB.
