Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Federal Express (FedEx Express) flight 14 was a flight between Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC), Anchorage, Alaska and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), Newark, New Jersey that crashed during landing on July 31, 1997. Flight 14 crashed while landing on runway 22R at Newark on July 31, 1997. The flight originated in Singapore with intermediate stops in Penang, Malaysia followed by Taipei, Taiwan, and then Anchorage, Alaska. In addition to the Captain and First Officer there were 3 passengers including one riding in the jump seat. During the flight, the pilots were concerned that they would have little stopping distance after landing, and the captain said that he wanted to put the aircraft down early on the runway. The aircraft had departed with one thrust reverser inoperative, and the pilots knew of incidents in the craft's maintenance log where the auto-brakes had failed to activate during landings. They had also misinterpreted the runway data, and so believed they had less stopping distance than was actually available.show more
