    Pilot Fatigue Debated in UPS Birmingham Fatal Crash Probe - Bloomberg

    The two United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) pilots who crashed a cargo airplane last year in Birmingham, Alabama, were probably fatigued, a study by the flight crew’s union found.

    The filing by the Independent Pilots Association puts them in conflict with UPS, which filed a separate report to the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board concluding that it was errors by the flight crew that triggered the pre-dawn accident.

    The dueling submissions underscore tensions between the labor group and the company over pilot work schedules.
