I'm probably asking a bad question, but I want to be sure.
I'm revisiting the works of Horror Stories on YouTube, and a case he did a video on is the 1998 Cavalese Cable Car Disaster that claimed the lives of 20 people when a EA-6B Prowler aircraft flew too low and severed the cables to the car.
According to the court case and investigation, one of the four pilots recorded the flight for training purposes. When asked what they should do with the tape that recorded the accident, he was suggested to get rid of it. One of the pilots and the one who recorded the incident, switched the original tape while in the cabin with a blank, and then smuggled the original out to be burned later on in a bonfire. The two pilots would be dismissed from the Marines a year later for obstructing justice among other charges.
Since the tape is gone, I'm not sure if an article would be sufficient on that alone without focusing almost only on the accident and the investigation.
