NTSB, Gulfstream At Odds In Investigation
NTSB chairman Deborah Hersman has criticized some of the actions of Gulfstream staffers during an investigation into a fatal crash during a flight test of a G650 in New Mexico last year. In a letter dated April 4, 2012, that was recently posted to the NTSB's public docket, Hersman says that while interacting with Gulfstream, NTSB investigators "encountered a variety of situations that are not typical when dealing with parties to investigations." She goes on to list her concerns, including "noncompliance with instructions from the NTSB investigator-in-charge relating to quarantine of accident-related telemetry data … unexplained missing evidence, including a computer hard drive containing accident-related telemetry data… [and] general conduct and dilatory tactics prejudicial to the investigation." Gulfstream President Larry Flynn defended the company's actions in a letter, also posted to the docket, stating that "Gulfstream has responded to each and every request for information from the NTSB as promptly as possible."
