NTSB letterhead

DEC 14 1999

Mr. Chalmers H. Goodlin
The Burnelli Company, Inc.
2506 Ponce De Leon Boulevard
Coral Gables, Florida 33134

Dear Mr. Goodlin:

Thank you for your November 15, 1999, letter, which expressed dissatisfaction with our response to your September 13, 1999, letter regarding the Burnelli Lifting Body design.

I regret that you are not satisfied with our earlier response, dated October 27, 1999.  Please be assured that staff from our Aviation Engineering Division watched the videotape, titled "Burnelli: The Greatest Story in Aviation History," and read the newspaper articles regarding aviation accidents that you enclosed with your earlier letter.  I have reviewed our October 1999 letter and continue to believe that it is most appropriate response to address the material you provided.  Also, I am pleased that you followed our suggestion and contacted Mr. Nelson J. Miller at the Federal Aviation Administration's Technical Center regarding your company's Lifting Body design.

Thank you for your interest in aviation safety.


Jim Hall


Thank you for your interest in aviation safety,



Jim Hall

Editor's note: If you compare Mr. Hall's letter (reproduced below) to the Burnelli letter of November 15, 1999 to which this is allegedly a response, you'll see that Mr. Hall again evades the only question of that letter:

"Why has the NTSB failed to recognize that the cause of most aircrash fatalities is due to the fundamental flaws  which are inherent in conventional airliners?"

No further comment is necessary at this point.  We only hope that Mr. Hall will remember that his job is to serve the american public - not special interests - and that upon his shoulders rests much of the responsibility for fatalities which could have been avoided.

It's your money Congress is using to fund the NTSB and the NTSB uses it to look after someone else's interests - not yours!  Why not write your Congressman and/or your Senator, write to Mr. Hall [see Mr. Goodlin's previous letter for address], and require that they perform their duties in good faith!
