MH17 is not the only aviation investigation done by DSB and criticized by next of kin or experts. The investigation performed by Dutch Safety Board on the Martinair DC10 crash at Faro in 1992, in which 56 people died, is far from executed properly.

Dutch secretary of State Dijksma wants DSB to start a new investigation into  the crash as there still are many things unclear, as reported by EenVandaag today.

While the Portugese aviation authorities concluded the aircraft crashed due to pilot error, the Dutch Safety Board (then called Raad voor de Luchtvaart) concluded the cause was a windshear.

Dutch TV program EenVandaag had an aviation expert look into the results of the DSB report. The archived report of DSB is state secret till January 1 2073.

DSB stated at February 18 that it will not start a new investigation. First it will wait for the results of an investigation by  experts ordered by a judge on request of next of kins and survivors.

    [First it will wait for the results of an investigation by experts ordered by a judge on request of next of kins and survivors.]

    But there is still an investigation done by aviation expert Harry Horlings.
    „Horlings said the official report missed crucial last seconds and pointed out that some data may have been altered. “It seems there was great effort to avoid blame on the pilots, which would result in blame on the airline,” he said.“
