    The National Transportation Safety Board will convene Tuesday at 10AM Pacific time (1PM Eastern) to hear the staff findings and recommendations on the fire aboard the Conception that killed 34 people on September 2 last year. This will mark the conclusion of their investigation and the public is invited to observe through the NTSB website. This will probably last 3-4 hours as it involves the various sub-groups of investigators (operations, engineering, fire, survivability, etc.) presenting the findings within their specialty. The five-member Board will then vote to accept, reject, or modify the recommendations of the staff. The Board is based in Washington, D.C., so these hearings normally start at 9:30AM Eastern, which is 6:30AM Pacific. Since they know there will be a large West Coast-based level of interest, they agreed to start later so that more west coasters can more easily tune in.

    Just to be clear for others, because I was confused. That's 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern. All the talk of Eastern times in your post and I was thinking it was Eastern. Yeah, I DID think to myself "They only gave 'em an extra half hour? That's pretty crappy." Well.. no, it's a 3.5 hour difference :wink:

    Thanks Ken,
    would you think it will be made available also after the fact or will it be only live streaming?

    Cheers

    I would expect it to be recorded, most (public) meetings have been lately with covid

    Yes, given the sheer volume of speculation I've read here, I will be very, very interested to see what the experts were able to conclude, even with the difficulty of much of the boat having burned and no survivors from the lower deck as witnesses.
