NTSB Board Meeting

Tuesday, June 24 at 9:30 a.m.

NTSB Board Room and Conference Center

Washington, DC

What the NTSB has reported thus far in their investigation of the Asiana Flight 214 crash:

  • Investigators have indicated that the pilots of the Asiana Flight 214 were flying too low and too slow during approach.
  • Asiana Airlines indicated in a March filing that the "probable cause" of the crash was due to the pilots flying too slow.
  • The Asiana filing also said that "inconsistencies" with the Boeing 777's auto-throttle system were a factor in the crash. Boeing dismissed the claims, saying the plane functioned as expected.
  • The Boeing filing indicated that the Asiana flight crew should have aborted the landing at 500 feet, per airline policy, due to numerous miscues with the plane's speed and thrust setting.
  • The NTSB reported that flying pilot Lee Kang Kuk was landing at SFO for the first time.
  • Evacuation slides deployed inside the cabin in the aftermath of the crash, temporarily pinning a flight attendant. The manufacturer of the slides - Air Cruiser - is conducting tests.
  • A San Francisco firefighter ran over one of the three girls who were killed as a result of the crash.
