    Default Safety at Fedex

    In less then four years straight, another reported death of a Fedex employee while unloading aircraft at the main hub in Memphis.
    This means 3 people died while working to unload cargo at the same facility.
    Safety must be second place at Fedex, profits first.

    RIP and prayers to the family of the deceased.

    A FedEx employee was killed early Thursday morning at the shipper's hub at Tennessee's Memphis International Airport while loading and unloading cargo from a Boeing 777. Police were called to the airport shortly after 12:30 a.m. about an accidental injury, and found the dead female employee under a motorized conveyer belt system. The NTSB is investigating, as are state labor officials.
    This incident marks the third time in less than four years that a FedEx worker has been killed on the job.

    More on Fedex safety.
    The company delayed aircraft maintenance past the manufacturers guideline.
    Result ... wrecked beyond repair aircraft. No lives lost, but it could have been devastating.

    FedEx plane's landing-gear failure 'likely' could have been caught before accident, NTSB says
    WASHINGTON – The landing gear on a FedEx cargo flight collapsed during a landing in Florida in 2016 because of corrosion that led to the metal cracking, federal investigators said Thursday.
    The two pilots escaped with the captain suffering minor injuries in the incident on Oct. 29, 2016, in Fort Lauderdale. But the McDonnell Douglas MD-10-10F wide-body plane was damaged beyond repair by the landing and a fuel-fed fire on the left wing, which exploded the nearly empty left main fuel tank.
    The National Transportation Safety Board ruled in a 23-page report that the left landing gear cracked and collapsed because of wear and tear inside, which wasn’t coated with required cadmium to reduce damage.
    Investigators said damage to the landing gear “would likely” have been noticed if it had been overhauled after eight years, as manufacturer Boeing recommended, rather than the nine-year interval that FedEx maintained. The accident happened eight years and 213 days after the plane’s last overhaul.
