 NTSB to Meet on 747 Freighter Crash in Afghanistan and Truck–Motorcoach Collision in California

​The National Transportation Safety Board will meet to determine the probable cause of the April 29, 2013 crash of a National Airlines Boeing 747 freighter shortly after takeoff from Bagram Airbase in Afghanistan. The crash fatally injured all seven crewmembers.

Media Contact: Eric Weiss, eric.weiss@ntsb.gov 

In a second meeting, the Board will discuss a highway crash that occurred in Orland, CA.
On April 10, 2014, a 2007 Volvo truck-tractor, operated by FedEx Freight, Inc., crossed a 58-foot-wide median, struck a 2013 Nissan Altima four-door passenger car, and then collided head-on with a 2014 Setra motorcoach. Both the truck and the motorcoach drivers were killed, along with eight motorcoach passengers. Thirty-seven motorcoach passengers and two occupants of the passenger car were injured.
