Answer preview

Threat and Error Management (TEM) is a high safety concern for airline operations. The TEM framework helps improve the system and human performance (SKYbrary Aviation Safety, 2021). Looking back at the Eastern 401 accident, it is clear that it was caused by human error. The plane landed at a rate of 200 feet. The crew was so relaxed that they could not realize that the nose gear was missing and was not locked down to its normal position. It also had a deem light indicator that was not easy to identify. The crew should always be on their toes until they safely land, as they are responsible for the lives of thousands of families.
