    UPS Crash Pilot Told Colleague Schedule Was ‘Killing’ Him - Bloomberg

    A United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) pilot who said he felt tired was descending too steeply when his plane struck a hillside in Alabama and crashed before dawn last year, according to documents released by U.S. investigators.

    Captain Cerea Beal told a fellow UPS pilot within a day of the Aug. 14 flight that “the schedules are killing him and he could not keep this up,” according to records released today at a hearing by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board.
