Hearing includes role of pilots in highly automated aircraft
October 28, 2013
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is convening a 2-day investigative hearing to discuss the ongoing investigation into the crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 and to gather additional factual information.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) issued an apology after an intern at the agency confirmed the wrong names for the pilots of Asiana Flight 214 – which crashed July 6 at San Francisco International Airport – with a California TV station.
While the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and other agencies investigate Saturday’s Asiana Airlines crash at San Francisco International Airport, the local coroner’s office is trying to determine whether one of the two fatalities in the incident was caused by a fire truck that was rushing to the burning plane.
