Leading Indicators: Tenerife Tragedy

The 1977 accident on the island of Tenerife marked a turning point for commercial aviation. Every day on every flight, airline crews behave differently because of lessons learned from this accident. Odie takes three of the most important aspects of the Tenerife tragedy and breaks them into principles for working in any high risk environment:

  1. Unexpected changes in work activity,
  2. Failure to recognize hazards, and
  3. Leadership failure to listen.

View the trailer for the Tenerife video which includes portions of the interview with Bob Bragg, the only surviving flight crew member from that tragic day.
