New developments from voice recorder in UPS crash

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - New details have developed about the crash of UPS Flight 1354 in Birmingham, Alabama.

According to a Wall Street Journal article, new information has been revealed about the cockpit voice recorder. The plane, which took off from Louisville, crashed in late August and both crew members on board were killed.

The report said the recorder captured the pilots talking about how tired they were and how fatiguing they felt UPS overnight schedules could be. This discussion happened before their pre-dawn approach to Birmingham.

The NTSB hasn't officially determined the cause, but investigators previously said they uncovered no problems with engines or other on-board systems.
