The airline say that The pilot of the plane that crash-landed on the runway in San Francisco was still training on the Boeing 777 and had never landed one at that airport, The Cabin manager of Asiana Flight 214 Lee Yoon-hye has described some of the scenes from when the plane crash landed. She said One flight attendant put a scared elementary schoolboy on her back and slid down a slide, while a pilot helped another injured flight attendant off the plane after the passengers escaped. Lee herself worked to put out fires and usher passengers to safety despite a broken tailbone. Investigating 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. less
