Comair a Cincinnati-based airline forced pilot Michael Hillis to resign due to poor performance. Hillis was then hired by American Eagle, which was unaware of Hillis' problems at Comair. Hillis was the pilot of Eagle Flight 3379, which crashed in North Carolina in December, 1994, killing 15 of 20 on board. (Sept. 19, 20, Oct. 24 & Nov. 9, 1995)
