This safety forum offers an increased understanding of the multiple layers of protection that exist to assure fuselage structural integrity throughout the operational lifespan of an airplane. It is intended to raise awareness by promoting an open discussion between the Safety Board and invited panelists from industry and government on the design, manufacture, and inspection requirements for airplane fuselage structures to ensure that the already high safety record in this area continues.
