Submission + - NASA is withholding pilot safety survey results

Ranten_N_Raven writes: "According to Yahoo News, NASA did interviews of airline pilots in 2005 about safety issues. Can't be good news in it, because they have refused to release the results.

Anxious to avoid upsetting air travelers, NASA is withholding results from an unprecedented national survey of pilots that found safety problems like near collisions and runway interference occur far more frequently than the government previously recognized...A senior NASA official, associate administrator Thomas S. Luedtke, said revealing the findings could damage the public's confidence in airlines and affect airline profits.
But don't worry, now, it's being taken care of: NASA is ordering the contractor who did the interviews to 'purge all related data from their computers.'"
