Canberra air disaster, 1940 - Fact sheet 142 – National Archives of Australia

The Fact sheet about the Canberra air disaster, 1940

Bryce Harding's insight:

The Airforce have a pretty good history with a limited number of major disasters in recent history. However they are not immune to risk nor are their safety measures full proof. While air crashes may not be a regular occurrence for them they have had problems with exposing workers to hazardous chemicals in the past which even years on is still being rectified.

Bryce Harding's insight:

Emergency management preparation is something that can be done very well or very poorly. When money is tight spending it on a system that does not get used everyday seems like a waste of resources and can have its funding cut. This is when things start taking the turns which lead to a disaster of either a natural or man made causes.
