David Learmount, Operations & Safety Editor at Flight Global, analyzes the information so far available concerning the crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214, a Boeing 777, at San Francisco airport last week. It’s the most authoritative review of what happened that I’ve come across so far.
It’s looking more and more as if the crash was caused solely by pilot and/or crew error. If that’s sustained, I suspect their aviation careers are over. Sadly, so are the lives of two passengers, and several dozen more will be affected by their injuries for months to come – some for the rest of their lives.
