Asiana Airlines Breaking News: Asiana Pilot Had Little Experience Flying Boeing 777

by Wochit 1:03 mins

Asiana Airlines says the pilot of the ill-fated Boeing 777 that crashed had little experience flying the aircraft and was landing one for the first time at San Francisco International when it slammed into the runway, killing two teenaged passengers and injuring more than half the 307 passengers and crew. Investigators have determined that Asiana Airlines Flight 214 was traveling "significantly below" the target speed during its approach and that the crew tried to abort the landing just before it smashed onto the runway. What they don't yet know is whether the pilot's inexperience with the type of aircraft and at San Francisco's airport played a role. Asiana Airlines said that the captain of the flight that crashed at San Francisco International Airport had relatively little experience piloting Boeing 777s and had clocked only 43 hours on the model.
