Its a damn shame. If you read the wiki link in the video the pilots association tried suing the FAA because of a cargo crew rest requirement exemption. They lost in federal court due to cost and benefit analysis. Basically the pilots lives on a cargo ship are not enough people to care about. Damn shame. The pilots may well have been responsible for their own lack of rest but the law should cover all commercial flight crew. Not just passenger jets!

As a pilot , I understand the industry push for "gender diversity" this creates a form of affirmative action that places under qualified personnel in to the cockpit for the sake of social engineering. A similar experience occured to F14 pilot call sign "revlon" Lt. Kara Spears Hultgreen who died crashing her F14 in a pure pilot error move attempting to land on USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). She had blown her approach and performed maneuvers in the go around specifically cautioned against in training and manuals. This resulted in the death of an otherwise talented individual who was underqualified. CDR Tom Sobiek, commanding officer of Fighter Squadron VF-124, stated "the women are going to graduate regardless of how they performed" and that "the Navy was in a race with the Air Force to get the first female fighter pilot". ANYTIME you have affirmative action you extract meritocracy from the equation...and people die. When I used to fly in Africa, I was shocked to see that some passengers would NOT fly with a black pilot. While ridiculous at first consideration; I realize that there position was based on the desire for the airlines to promote black pilots often at the risk of proper qualifications. I have flown with many women, black and asian pilots. I find all equally capable if they exit a training system that is unbiased and based on true merit and performance. Affirmative action only promotes the logically derived concept of human inferiority based or race or gender and should be dismantled.

So what do you clowns have to say about the crashes involving men? Like Western Airlines 2605?? I'll wait...

You are correct sir. I have amended my prior comment.

grooveclubhouse that still doesn't explain anything. And I need numbers from you, if you will.

For everyone bashing them for being females just an FYI, 100% of UPS pilots have bachelors degrees and 30% of them have masters degrees and 100% of them have more brain cells than the morons commenting on this video. All the pilots are very capable.

ntcrawford722 uh retard? No one mentioned that a pilot had to have a degree. Now go put your head back up your Obama.

One thing for sure, while everybody else was trying to figure out what day it was, that controller kept his act together and did a great job of orchestrating the best that he could.

Tragic accident and I feel sad for the crew.  I  feel like "Alice in wonderland"  when I read some of the comments that people have posted about a FEMALE pilot being involved.  This crew made mistakes that I have seen before in my experience that did not result in a fatality and automation is a big part of how the airplane is flown in today's environment.  There are beneficial things to be derived from this accident and I am hopeful that the NTSB [ safety Board ] explanation should be the focus of the presentation.

There are few Females in airline cockpits and I am sure each one can tell quite a story about what they went through to get to that point.

Bah, they (well, most of them) are just trolls who know that blatant sexism is an easy way to get attention.

I will Defend to the END the Female first officer aboard the aircraft. Her loss was tragic and she presented a professional image of herself in her communications to air traffic control.  Although I am reluctant to separate the work on the flight deck as being anything else but a crew product;  the Female first officer was not at the controls and had to complete the checklists and radio communications simultaneously. She was possibly not fully aware of the errors in the Flight Management Computer and to a lesser extent was operating with a more seasoned Captain at the controls.

Ops certainly wasn't in a hurry were they? I never heard of the airport staying open during an active crash. And the dope in OPS 27 is an IDIOT

The crash occurred about a mile from the airport. No need to close the airport.

What's wrong with females?

The coordination is pitiful, a specific alarm is normally initiated the fire brigade is out of their hanger and moving to a coordinate on a chart. This is a joke. The go time is supposed to be out of the fire station within 30 seconds. At PNX, DEN, LAS, SLC that I have toured. It's a UPS, but there could be 6-8 personal onboard, in addition to valuable cargo and some cargo that in a fire could release dangerous fumes, explosives lithium batteries. TV news copters likely got to the scene first while these crazy of bastards were twiddling their thumbs.

FedEx had a crash also with a female pilot. Same with Colgan 3407. When you consider how few female pilots there are, they seem to show up a lot in air disasters at a far greater rate than their participation rate in the industry. The reality is the standards for women are quietly lowered in order to appease the SJW movement. And try firing one. Well, they did fire one. The female pilot that landed her Southwest 737 on the nose wheel first.

I’ll tell you what makes the difference - it’s the type of plane not the gender of the pilots. It’s another Airbus accident. I refuse to fly Airbus if I can. Boeing all the way for me.

still curious why did they land on that short runway over the hill when they always take te long run way running east to west. they fly over my house every morning coming from the east landing around 430-5am. sucks

+tom Dilbert true I heard and found it it was closed and opened after the crash sadly. wish they waited or something
Laverne Johnson (1 year ago)
As you can hear that the runway 6/24 was closed. But only for another 15 minutes. The FedEx jet waited for the runway to open. UPS accepted the the approach to runway 18. Just s localizer , bad decision

GEEEZ, that one emergency responder was really slow on the uptake. Even maintenance troops listen on frequency and know what's going on. Don't those guys have their ears on?.... for crying out loud.
George Soros (7 months ago)
It was 4:40 in the morning. It's completely easy to mentally checkout on the graveyard shift when you expect nothing to happen, not a good mentality to have as an emergency responder though.

It must be a shock when you work at a Control Tower and see a crash.... the man really sounds nervous...

"Just head up to Tarrant Huffman Road, you can't miss the fire..."  I love the FD asking if it crashed...
Rodney Hayes (3 years ago)
As a former Radio operator with numerous law enforcement agencies, I can tell you that it can get very busy in a nanosecond when disaster happens.  It is imperative that you somehow keep the "big picture" in your head at al times.  The ATC was initially caught off guard but made the switch to emergency mode very smoothly.  Kudoos.
Bruce Ginkel (4 years ago)
Gotta be tough to see that happen.  Props to tower though, kept the shop running through it all.

+thefactorypilot145 it seems terrible and very cold to say something like that, but fuck it couldn't be more true... It's hard to look at a dot on the radar as human lives, and sometimes, for sake of everyone else, it's better you don't...
thefactorypilot145 (2 years ago)
+Bruce Ginkel I just finished a book by an ATC retired controller. When he saw his first crash he stopped, and his training controller said "Fuck Him he's out of the game, you have living people in other planes that need vectoring."
