around 560ft before the departure terminal of the runway fair barking action as well as 40ft prior to departure end of the runway having a poor barking action. The pilots argued that they would make their decisions in accordance to the SWA policies and thus divert to one of their alternative points which was St. Louis Missouri or Kansas City in case the tailwind component exceed 10 knots. Also this could have been done if the braking report stated a poor braking action. At around 1854, ATC started giving the pilots descent instructions as well as the radar vectors as they released the holding pattern for the last approach course for the instrument landing system (ILS) approach to 31C runway. Around the same timeframe, the RVR stood at 4500 to 5000ft. The ATIS was reporting winds from 100 ° at 11knots. At about 1903:44 the pilots were cleared to intercept the runway 31C localizer. Subsequently, 30 seconds later, they were also cleared for the approach with the ATC stating that the braking action report was fair except at the end which turns out poor. From the CVR transcript, on contacting MDW Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) at around 1909, the pilots were advised to continue on runway 31C. Data obtained from the FDR showed that the airplane was aligned on the runway centerline while touching down. At the same time, the airspeed stood at 124knots.

    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.
