    UPS Crash Probe Focuses on Fatigue as U.S. Hearing Set - Bloomberg

    U.S. crash investigators are focusing on pilot fatigue, training and adherence to procedures in the fatal Aug. 14 crash of a United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) jet freighter in Birmingham, Alabama.

    The NTSB will call witnesses to discuss how UPS trains pilots for approaches like the one the accident crew was flying to Birmingham, which required them to stay clear of unlit hills near the runway without a radio beam to ensure they were at the correct altitude, according to the release.
