Research paper on the emergency response effort directed to a major aircraft mishap of your choosing.
The paper must be supported with references and regulations applicable to the incident/plan. Remember that the nature of the class is aircraft crash and emergency management and the focus of the paper should revolve around this theme. Papers that do not address this topic, but focus instead on other important, but irrelevant safety issues will not grade well.
