The NTSB has expanded its online database to include synopses of accidents occurring from 1962 to the present. Previously, data for accidents before 1983 were not available online. The site now contains the synopsis of more than 90,000 accidents, including the five years of investigations conducted by the Safety Board’s predecessor agency, the Civil Aeronautics Board, before 1967. Updated daily, the NTSB database contains a synopsis of each accident as it moves from a preliminary report to a factual, then to a final report.
