‘Commonly Occurring’ documents reported aviation safety occurrences in Australia between August 2010 and August 2011, ranging from items and carcasses found on the runway and entries onto the runway and taxiway without clearance, to fires, spurious alarms and mechanical and electrical failures. The publication explores the literary form of risk management, in particular the deceptive banality and formal awkwardness of routine reporting.
