Homework Answer on interaction of the human with flight ValuJet 592

On May 11, 1996, at 14.13 in the afternoon, a Douglas DC-9-32 crashed into the Everglades about 10 minutes after takeoff from Miami international Airport (MIA), Miami, Florida (Fishman, 2009). The airplane, N904VJ, was being operated by ValuJet Airlines Inc., as flight 592 (Fishman, 2009). The crash killed everyone on board; two pilots, three flight attendants, and 105 passengers (Fishman, 2009). Flight 592 had been scheduled to depart Miami international Airport for Atlanta at 13.00p.m.

Thedeparture time was delayed due to some minor electrical repairs done to the aircraft.Mechanics in Miami fixed the public address system but the auto pilot problem was to be fixed later on after the flight. It was an inconvenience to fly without the autopilot but it was totally safe.The cruising flight was to be flight level 350, with an estimated flight time of 1 hour 32 minutes to Atlanta (Mathews et al., 2000).

The company owned material consisted of two main tires and wheels, a nose tire and a wheel, and five boxes that were described as ‘Oxy Canisters-Empty.’The ramp agent who loaded the company owned material (COMAT) into the cargo compartment stated that within 5 minutes of loading the company owned material the cargo door was closed.
