Thematic investigation of incidents involving Boeing 737NG elevator control during approach/landing

AIBN refers to the findings in report SL 2015/01. Later, the AIBN has become aware of several incidents where it apparently has been necessary to use greater force than normal on the elevator control. The AIBN has decided to perform an investigation primarily based on flight recorder data from 800 000 flights in the period from 2003 until today.
