Synopsis: "The circumstances of the accident involving an American Airlines (AA) Boeing 757 that struck a mountain while in descent for a landing at Cali, Colombia, on December 20, 1995, and the manner in which the pilots lost situation awareness (SA), reveal much about the nature of situation awareness and the factors that can affect it in a dynamic environment such as an aircraft cockpit. In this paper, we will closely examine the circumstances that contributed to the loss of situation awareness by the pilots and describe how this led ultimately to the accident."
