NTSB EXPANDS RELEASE OF ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION PUBLIC
DOCKETS AVAILABLE ON WEBSITE BEGINNING NEXT WEEK

************************************************************
The National Transportation Safety Board today announced
that it will begin to release all accident investigation
public dockets to the NTSB public website,
http://www.ntsb.gov/, beginning June 1, 2009, in accordance
with the NTSB Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Improvement
Plan.

This effort serves to further bring the Safety Board into
compliance with a number of legislative and executive
mandates aimed at improving the U.S. government's use of
electronic media to foster a more open and transparent
government.

"I am proud that the NTSB is taking this enormous step
forward by making all accident investigation documents
contained in our public dockets available to NTSB website
visitors," said Acting Chairman Mark V. Rosenker. "The
Safety Board's reputation for comprehensive and thorough
investigations can only be further enhanced by providing
such easy access to the materials related to the accidents
we investigate."

In order to access the NTSB's public dockets, interested
website visitors may visit the FOIA Electronic Reading Room
on the NTSB website and select the list of dockets that are
organized by transportation mode. The link to the list of
public dockets may be found here:

may be obtained by calling the NTSB Records Management
Division at 202-314-6551 or 1-800-877-6799 or by sending an
email to pubinq@xxxxxxxxx
