ATSB Short Investigation Bulletin Issue 23

The ATSB has just released a new aviation bulletin containing 13 investigation reports. The Aviation Short Investigation Bulletin Issue 23 covers short, office-based investigations.

The bulletin covers incidents, serious incidents and accidents involving jet aircraft, turboprop aircraft, piston aircraft and helicopters. In some of the occurrences, people suffered minor injuries while some of the aircraft were substantially damaged.
