What caused Asiana Airlines Flight 214 to crash upon landing at San Francisco International Airport Saturday afternoon? Transportation officials investigating say everything is still on the table. However, they did release preliminary findings after reviewing flight and cockpit recordings.
FOX News Radio’s Jessica Rosenthal reports from San Francisco:
NTSB Chairwoman Deborah Hersman says air traffic control reported everything was fine.
Hersman: “Until the controller noticed that the aircraft hit the seawall. No prior distress calls or requests for special support or problems were noted in the air traffic control tapes.”
But among the crew, just seven seconds before impact, they called for more speed. Then the stick shaker activated.
Hersman: “This is both an oral and a physical cue to the crew that they are approaching a stall.”
One crew member called for a go-around, to abort landing and try again, but that was just one and a half seconds before impact.
