Abstract

An adaptor and a bolt were overloaded during a flight causing them to fracture. This chapter recounts the circumstances that led to the failure and the investigation that followed. It includes images of the fracture surfaces which show that both components failed quickly due to overload conditions. It also recommends the use of twin suspension hooks to make attachment points more stable under difficult flight conditions.
