Asiana Airlines says the Boeing 777 that crashed at San Francisco International Airport had inadequate warning systems to alert the crew to problems with air speed. In a filing with the National Transportation Safety Board released on Monday March 31, 2014, the airline says there was no indication that the plane's autothrottle had stopped maintaining the set air speed.

Asiana Airlines says last year’s Boeing 777 crash, which killed three and injured hundreds, was likely due to slow flying and failure to abort landing. Report to National Transportation Safety Board also cites failure in speed control features
By KRISTINA NGU, MATT HUSSFORD, ALEXIS SHAWNEE, LEEZEL TANGLO and DEAN SCHABNERBERG San Francisco – The stunning and devastating crash of an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 is just over a day old, but already National Transportation Safety Board officials are pointing to a culprit all too familiar to...
The commander of the Asiana Airlines jet that crashed in the US in July had failed to respond to as many as four separate verbal warnings from a co-pilot that the jet was descending too quickly. This is according to interview transcripts released yesterday by US investigators. The National Transportation Safety Board's public hearing also provided other instances of missed signals, inadequate crew communication and confusion about automated thrust settings in the cockpit before the accident. The plane was trying to land at San Francisco International Airport. The mechanically sound jet flew dangerously slow and low with the airport clearly in view before its tail slammed into a seawall. The accident killed three people and injured more than 180. 938live/ks
Asiana Airlines crash investigation focuses on automated controls NTSB investigators probe cockpit equipment to determine why the 777 jet approached the airport far too low and slow Air accident investigators are focusing on the automated cockpit equipment in the Asiana aircraft that crashed at San Francisco airport, to determine whether it contributed to the plane's dangerously low and slow approach. New details in the accident investigation that were revealed on Tuesday by National Transportation Safety Board chairman Deborah Hersman were not conclusive about the cause of Saturday's crash, but they raised potential areas of focus: was there a mistake made in setting the automatic speed control, did it malfunction or were the pilots not fully aware of what the plane was doing? One of the most puzzling aspects of the crash has been why the wide-body Boeing 777 jet came in far too low and slow, clipping its landing gear and then its tail on a rocky seawall just short the runway. The crash killed two of the ...
Safety Officials Investigate What Caused Asiana Airlines 777 Crash Investigators have already learned that the pilot had little experience flying the aircraft and that the plane was traveling "significantly below" its targeted speed during its approach to San Francisco International Airport. The pilot was attempting to land a Boeing 777 in San Francisco for the first time, according to a spokesperson for Asiana Airlines. Although the pilot had more than 10,000 flight hours flying other aircraft types, he had amassed only 43 flying hours on a 777. The crash landing caused the deaths of two onboard passengers out of the 307 passengers on the flight. The accident marked the first fatal crash by a commercial airline on U.S. soil since February 2009. According to National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Chairman Deborah Hersman, a preliminary review of the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder revealed the aircrew called for an increase in the aircraft's approach speed just seconds before impact. ...
Asiana Airlines: Mechanical Failure Or Pilot Error? The National Transportation Safety Board is looking at black box recordings and the shutdown of a key navigational aid as investigators try to find the cause of a deadly plane crash at San Francisco International Airport that killed two and left at least 182 injured.
