about

i am one of those people who for some reason have an interest in plane crashes. i have watched hours of Air Crash Investigation episodes, and i recently discovered the existence of the BEA-TT, the French equivalent of the NTSB for everything except aviation and marine. Aviation accidents are handled by the BEA and marine accidents by the BEAmer. i subscribed to the BEA-TT's RSS feed and read through every single of their reports.

i recently tried to find RSS feeds for other countries, just so i could have a whole accident reports folder in my news reader. i ran into two types of issues:

but hey, i can still browse webpages to find the reports—what if i parsed those pages?

this is the whole goal of this project; to centralize accident reports into manageable RSS feeds and maybe more formats later on.

you can get all the feeds at once: OPML CDF
