The report for this accident is 124 pages. Parts of this report are duplicated - I assume because of the various componets involved in the Accident Review process sent copies of the entire report with the evaluations up the chain of the command.

4 pages were photos that were not legiable because the report is a photo copy made from the microfilmed file.
