To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
Non-redacted investigation and aviation records from the 10 August 2018 crash of a DHC8 Q402 plane that departed from Seattle-Tacoma International Aiport. This is likely to be filed under accident number WPR18FA220 or plane registration N449QX. While NTDB contributed to this report, it appears FBI led the investigation, which was completed on 9 November 2018 (link below).
Ideally the FDR (flight data recorder) or QAR information will be given in a standardized exported format of the flight parameters evaluated during the investigation. Raw data is preferred, if not, summary data used for evaluations or presentations is acceptable. NTSB has typically released this data in a CSV format.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
There are eFOIA files available for you to download.
