The era of the late 1940s is when the United States of America QQQlearned the flaw of averages. During this period, planes were usually designed based on pilots’ physical dimensions with this trend has begun since 1926. The physical dimensions which were usually considered in the structuring of a plane include; length of the thumb, crotch height, the difference between a pilots’ ear and eye whose average was thereafter calculated. During this era of late 1926s, every person believed that improved calculation of average pilot for each of the forenamed dimensions would result in a better-fitting plane or cockpit, hence minimizing the number of crashes. However, there was an increased number of plane crashes in the late 1940s with 17 pilots crushing on the same day allowing people to understand that there is no such thing as an average being. According to the research, the main cause of plane crashes in the United States of America was due to their complexity rather than pilot error. As such, a large

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
