After the NetJets-operated Raytheon Hawker that collided with a sailplane in Nevada on August 28 (see page 106) prepared to land, one of the jet’s passengers cinched up his seat belt and the inboard portion of the seat belt detached. The passenger moved to another seat and the same thing happened. The NTSB has notified the primary maintenance inspector of NetJets and the Raytheon Hawker completions center in Little Rock, Ark., to check the rest of the Hawker fleet. According to the NTSB investigator in charge, at press time, NetJets had found no further failures.
