The sole intention for executing this project is to develop a clear understanding of various effects of air crash due to variables including, but not limited to, human error, maintenance faults, poor communication, management failures and financial restraints of aircraft organisations, examining British Airways specifically. The aims of this study are to closely investigate the incident of the British Airways BAC-One Eleven G-BJRT over Didcot Oxfordshire in 1990 and to understand the influence of human factors in the aviation industry. According to the International Journal of Aviation Psychology; “General aviation accidents represent 70% to 90% of all aviation accidents. Human error is implicated as a contributory factor in 85% of these crashes.” 2 These statistics show that the aviation industry has acknowledged that human error causes most aviation accidents
