Using a Cessna 172 dropped from a height of 100 feet, NASA’s Search and Rescue Mission Office simulated a severe but survivable plane accident Wednesday, Aug. 26 at the agency’s Langley Research Center to test emergency locator transmitters (ELTs). The devices are installed on general aviation and commercial planes to transmit a location signal in the event of a crash. On this third and final test in the series the plane was dropped from 100 feet, tail down into the ground.
