Accident Timeline and Analysis In my opinion, this accident started before the two pilots ever entered the aircraft. The Captain had already been on and completed a two-day trip and his final flight was to be from Newark to Buffalo because their first two flights of the day had been cancelled due to high winds and ground delays. The first officer lives near Seattle, Washington and had to commute to Newark. She was in the jump seat of a FedEx cargo plane and had to make a switch in Memphis to get to Newark. They spent time in crew lounge, there were several witnesses that says they were napping, which is against the rules, but many pilots did it anyway. Obviously the first officer wouldn’t have gotten much sleep riding in the jump seat of a cargo plane. The Captain didn’t get much sleep either because he had been working. Neither of the pilots felt like they made enough money to justify getting a hotel room so they could be rested and fit for duty. Instead they took rest where and when they could. This is the beginning of the unsafe act! The flight from Newark was scheduled to leave at 7:10 pm EST, but did not take off until 9:18 pm EST. So, once again they had been delayed only adding to them already being tired.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
