Backstories from ValuJet Flight 592 Crash Investigation

Episode 30

Greg Feith takes us inside his experience as the NTSB investigator in charge (IIC) of the ValuJet Flight 592 investigation. John Goglia was also involved. Together they talk through the launch of that investigation and share many behind-the-scenes experiences.

  • Creative procurement of resources needed
  • A rental car that rolled into the water
  • 3 am recovery of a wreckage “souvenir” at the home of a worker
  • The special smell in the hangar where the wreckage was reconstructed

These memories are overlaid with recollections of the high stress, emotion and expectations of the seven plus months of investigation. The teamwork onsite created many lasting connections and relationships.
