Summary:

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, under pressure from an Associated Press FOIA request to release results of a safety survey of 29,000 commercial and private pilots, finally dumps the data into the public realm. But the data -- contained in 16,208 pages -- is so heavily censored and incomprehensible to be of little use.

Keywords:
