WingsWatch - Aviation Incident Database

I don't know if this is the right place to put this, if not mods feel free ... but I have created an alternative site for the NTSB/FAA that allows you to see all accidents/incidents.

I created it as a faster, smoother response than their respective sites with additional features.

Any feedback is welcome. This is a "no strings attached" site, I'm funding it. No ads, no trackers.

Nice idea.

But I can't see any way of listing FAA accident data, only that from the NTSB. What am I doing wrong ?

Might be nice to have each column sorted by clicking on the header row.

That way one can sort by type, state/country, etc

The title is slightly off, that is my mistake.

FAA data is currently not on the live site, I have it in the codebase. There will be an update shortly to add this information such as US airline accidents.

Right now, foreign events are listed.

Excellent suggestion and I will implement this. You should be able to narrow this down via the search field, but clickable column headers and an an advanced search are coming shortly, right after I make some improvements to the maps (the heatmaps need some attention, and a US map is coming shortly).

A good resource

I realise that GA is very prevalent in the US but what strikes me is the sheer volume of accidents/incidents that occur there.

Not judging and not after a reason. Just stating an observation.

Check out the "Heatmaps" link at the top and switch to any prior year like 2019.

Notice how many are in Florida and Southern California, the prime training grounds.

A nice looking site, and I'm sure it will work better than the FAA's search engines. But I do need to say that I think the title of 'The internet's most comprehensive site for aviation incidents and accidents' is taken already. Harro Ranter has put many years of work into his effort and Aviation-Safety.net is a pretty comprehensive database by now.

It's kind of like guns. Where the guns are we have shootings. Where the planes are we have prangs

Do you mean that you have places where you don't have guns?

(Sorry. Couldn't let that chance go by)

Ironically yes.

For instance any court building (unless you're a bailiff etc) including of course all the way up to the Supreme Court. Then there's the Capitol, can't take one in there nor on a White House tour.

Ironic because the people who make and uphold the laws supporting "gun rights" apparently feel ok with the rest of the country being flooded with firearms of all types ... but not where they live and work
