  2. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Experiment
    Evidence: "RESULTS ... Commission Errors All of the pilots (N = 21) who experienced the false engine fire message did ultimately shut down the engine. This was contrary to responses on the debriefing questionnaire indicating that an EICAS message without other cues would not be sufficient to diagnose 'definitely a fire,' and that it would be safer, in the presence of only an EICAS message, to retard the throttle of the indicated engine and complete the go-around procedure with the engine running rather than to shut down the suspect engine."

  4. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Experiment
    Evidence: "RESULTS Omission Error Events ... Descriptive analyses revealed overall omission rates for flight-related events of approximately 55% ... The altitude load failure and the heading capture failure, the two events arguably most critical to aircraft operation safety, remained undetected by 44% and 48% of the participants respectively. The frequency misload was undetected by 71% of pilot participants. Only three pilots detected all three flight-related events; five pilots failed to detect any of the three flight-related events."
