Discussion; Why Do We Investigate Aircraft Accidents?

Research any current event (within the past 24 months) associated with an aircraft/Unmanned Aerial System incident, accident, and/or aviation safety study. Discuss the implications for industry, and/or the role of the investigative and regulatory bodies associated with these events. Be sure to differentiate the roles and responsibilities of the different agencies and apply NTSB terminology, as appropriate.
