San Francisco plane crash
A county coroner said his office is conducting an autopsy to determine whether one of the teenage victims of the Asiana Airlines crash at San Francisco International Airport was run over and killed by an emergency vehicle.
Officials investigating a jetliner crash in San Francisco 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 this type of aircraft and at this airport played a role.
An aviation safety official says accident investigators are looking into what role the shutdown of a key navigational aid may have played in the San Francisco plane crash.
