Follow-up / safety actions
Following this and two similar 767 accidents in 1992 and 1993, Boeing initiated production modifications to strengthen the upper crown portion of the fuselage effective on assembly line position 563. Boeing also also published landing techniques in its flight training manual, a Flight Operations Technical Bulletin on the issue and an article in the Airliner magazine.
The NTSB urged that more permanent, clear, cautionary material be added to
flight manuals and that this material be emphasized during initial and recurrent
traininig. On June 16, 1994 the NTSB issued safety recommendations A-94-118 through -121 to address this issue on 767 and other airplanes.
