Excerpt
Excerpt: On May 11, 1996, at 1413:42 Eastern Daylight Time, a Douglas DC-9-32 crashed into the Everglades about 10 minutes after takeoff from Miami International Airport, Miami, Florida. The airplane, N904VJ, was being operated by ValuJet Airlines, Inc., as flight 592. Both pilots, the three flight attendants, and all 105 passengers were killed. Visual meteorological conditions existed in the Miami area at the time of the takeoff. Flight 592, operating under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 121, was on an instrument flight rules flight plan destined for the William B Hartsfield International Airport, Atlanta, Georgia. The investigation revealed that shortly before flight 592's departure from Miami, five boxes of unexpended chemical oxygen generators and three tires (two of which included wheel assemblies) were loaded into the forward cargo compartment (a class F c T i n t ) Personnel from the SabreTech Corporation, a maintenance facility with which ValuJet had an ongoing contractual relationship for line maintenance and heavy aircraft maintenance, had loaded the boxes on flight 592 before takeoff. The oxygen generators, all of which were near or past their expiration dates, had been removed from three ValuJet MD-80s at SabreTech. Passenger baggage and U.S. mail (62 pounds), which included a mailing tube, a film box, and one priority mail bag were also loaded into this compartment.
