Why can't I find the incident report I had to file after my death defying landing at John Wayne Airport in Costa Mesa Ca. around 1983? They found the clutch with 4 belts to have malfunctioned and grounded all Robinsons in service, until a better configuration was developed.
I don't think your "death-defying experience" was classified as an incident or accident. Checking the list of occurrences the NTSB classifies as an incident does not show that what happened to you needs to be reported as one. Mechanical failures of all kinds happen on aircraft all the time. Very few of them are required to be reported to the NTSB.
