Investigators are trying to determine whether pilot error was to blame in the deadly crash at San Francisco’s airport over the weekend.
The crash killed two people and sent more than 180 to hospitals.
Asiana Airlines has said that Lee Gang-guk, who was at the controls, had nearly 10,000 hours flying other planes but only 43 hours flying the Boeing 777. It was his first time landing that type of plane at that airport.
Investigators say the Asiana Airlines jet that crashed at the San Francisco International Airport on Saturday, killing two passengers and sending more than 180 to hospitals, may have been on the verge of stalling because it was flying too slowly.
The plane clipped the sea wall as it came in for a landing, crashing onto the runway and breaking apart.
The airline said today that the pilot of the plane was experienced but was landing a Boeing 777 for the first time at San Francisco airport.

The only Islamist group to join the military in deposing the elected government of Mohammed Morsi says it will withdraw its support for the transition plan in response to what it calls a “massacre” of pro-Morsi supporters.
