Northwest Flight 188: FAA Transcripts Released

In separate interviews with the NTSB after the incident, Capt. Timothy B. Cheney and First Officer Richard I. Cole told investigators they were in a "concentrated period of discussion" over a new monthly crew flight scheduling system in place as a result of the merger of Delta and Northwest. Both accessed and used his personal laptop computer while they discussed the airline crew flight scheduling procedure. Cole, who was more familiar with the procedure, was providing instruction to Cheney, the NTSB said.
