The windscreen change on this aircraft was not considered a vital point. The CAA state that the term “vital point” is not intended to refer to multiple fastened parts of the structure, but applies to a single point, usually in an aircraft control system. In September 1985 BCARs introduced a requirement for duplicate inspections of vital points, which are defined as: any point on an aircraft at which a single malassembly could lead to a catastrophe, resulting in loss of the aircraft or fatalities.
