Larry Vance Speaks with the CBC's Adrienne Arsenault on "The National" (2014-04-25)

Larry Vance Speaks About the MH370 Investigation

 On April 23rd, 2014, Larry Vance of Accident Investigation and Research was featured on a segment of “The National”, Canada’s preeminent national news broadcast on the CBC.

 

Mr. Vance was interviewed by Adrianne Arsenault for a segment titled “Investigation Confidential: Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370”. He was asked to help explain what typically happens within an official investigation, such as the investigation of MH370. Vance related his experiences as a lead investigator of the Swissair 111 Accident that happened on September 2nd 1998 near at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia.

Among many other insights, Mr. Vance indicated to the viewing audience that the absence of Technical Safety Bulletins or similar airworthiness alerts concerning the B777 following the disappearance of the aircraft indicates that the official investigation has not found any technically reproducible scenarios that could explain the accident. Therefore, it can be assumed that the investigators believe that some other explanation better fits the known facts.

Mr. Vance went on to explain that the absence of floating wreckage could be explained by the scenario of a non-high energy impact with the ocean. A high speed impact with water inevitably produces many small pieces of floating debris.

The position espoused by Mr. Vance was that inevitably the causes of the accident will be determined by a process of examining and eliminating those scenarios that do not come to a logical conclusion consistent with the known facts. It is the determination of those facts which is at the heart of the investigation currently unfolding.
