Pilot who caused fatal San Francisco plane crash had no experience landing a Boeing 777

Posted under Personal injury

Asiana Airlines said pilot Lee Kang-gook, who was in charge of the Boeing 777 that crash landed in San Francisco on Saturday, July 6, had never landed that type of plane before.

Asiana Airlines Flight 214’s cockpit voice recorder showed that the pilots tried to avoid the landing merely two seconds before the airplane crashed at San Francisco International Airport, the head of National Transportation Safety Board, Deborah Hersman, said on July 7.

Furthermore, Hersman said that the airplane’s voice and flight data recorders showed that the flight from South Korea had been coming in too slow and was flying too low, causing the pilots to accelerate seven seconds before impact. However, she did refused to state the actual reason for the plane’s unfortunate crash landing.
