Q&A: Crash and burn?

Q&A (2017)Allan BlutsteinComment

 Q.  I sent photographs to Langley AFB in April 1998 that were forwarded to the safety office of the commander.  The materials were dated September 14, 1997, and I received a thank you letter from the commander. Can I request by FOIA or have any right to any report or review of my materials by the safety office?  The date is significant because it was the date that the F-117A stealth fighter crashed in Maryland.

A.  The Air Force might not still possess these records after two decades, but no harm in making a request.  For instructions on how to submit a request, see the Air Force's Freedom of Information Act web page.
