I was a LM out of CCK at the time (776 TAS)(usual AC at the time was Ted Applebaum).
One of those FEs was a crew chief someone talked into acting as a scanner. Crew was in the middle of a Micronesia run, IIRC - lots of stuff out to little islands with no runway to speak of, and not much adult supervision. The AC had 2 high-time CPs he was supposed to be building hours on for upgrade. Decided to fly that day on his own, to his detriment. The NAV opted out also, but was apparently in ops watching. IIRC, the FA's father was a retired O-6 of some sort.
