Scene of the Accident
With any kind of aviation accident like this, I always encourage a closer look through an independent investigation. Why? Because the National Transportation Safety Board is in charge of every aviation accident in the country. Due to their massive backlog, investigations can take up to a year or a year and a half, which burns up a significant portion of time in which families of victims can act. The independent investigation can give families the answers their looking for, and can get them significantly faster than a government agency can. Moving swiftly in these kinds of accidents can yield an advantage, and there is nothing swift about an NTSB investigation.
