    The father of a former girlfriend was killed in an accident upon approach to Tucson around 1977. How do I go about finding the details of the investigation? I've tried Google searches using Tucson NTSB 1977 but the results are less than desired. Suggestions?

    not sure, but you might want to try airdisaster.com

    ...seems there was another site we used to look at all the time that had a bunch of info on incidents that went back years and years and years...

    have you tried the NTSB archives??

    good luck

    Yes, but I still can't find a record of it. Her father was a passenger on the plane and I think the pilot also died so I was looking for 2 fatality accidents but none of them look to be the right one. I couldn't find a way to search using his last name which would have made it much easier to find.

    I checked FAA records too, but they only start at 1978 and I'm pretty sure this took place in 77.

    No, it's not the Mooney. They were returning to Tucson and were not going to the Grand Canyon. Her dad was a land/ranch broker so I think they had been out looking at some property that day. It was rumored that the pilot was a former drug runner but there wasn't much follow-up on that in the news as I recall.
