Abstract
The investigations are directed toward (a) identifying and describing any cyclic yearly patterns in the accident rates of the CF-104 flying with the Canadian Forces Europe, (b) isolating the human factors which produce such patterns, and (c) translating the findings into useful recommendations that can be employed to prevent aircraft accidents. A preliminary analysis of accident rates in the CF-104 has indicated that accidents tend to occur more frequently in January, April, July and October than in the other months.
