Source Type:   Accident
Synopsis: "The accident involving an American Airlines Boeing 757 that crashed on approach to Cali, Colombia, in December 1995, was examined to better understand the errors that the pilots committed. Their loss of situation awareness about their proximity to terrain resulted from several factors involving their use of the flight management system under high workload conditions, The implications of FMS use on our understanding of situation awareness and decision making are explored."
