National Transportation Safety Board
The National Transportation Safety Board has released the agenda for next week’s investigative hearings on Asiana Flight 214.
A National Transportation Safety Board report blames shoddy workmanship for a tear in the roof of a Southwest Airlines flight in 2011.
Federal transportation officials are investigating whether Asiana Airlines failed to meet legal obligations to help the families of passengers whose flight crash landed at San Francisco International Airport.
Three years after a deadly PG&E pipeline explosion in San Bruno, a spokeswoman for the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office told KCBS that they will not be filing criminal charges against the utility.
The National Transportation Safety Board has received several complaints of attorneys soliciting victims of the deadly Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crash last month.
Federal safety officials said a pilot initially told passengers not to evacuate an Asiana Airlines flight that crash landed at San Francisco International Airport over the weekend.
Investigators trying to piece together what went wrong will consider a report about a blinding light flash and the pairing of the pilots, who were assigned to work together through a tightly regulated system developed after several deadly crashes in the 1980s were blamed in part on inexperience in the cockpit.
Investigators are trying to understand whether automated cockpit equipment Asiana flight 214’s pilots said they were relying on to control the airliner’s speed may have contributed to the plane’s dangerously low and slow approach just before it crashed.
Several people aboard Asiana Airlines Flight 214 have said at least one of the Boeing 777’s evacuation chutes opened inside the cabin rather than outside the jet after it crashed Saturday at San Francisco International Airport, federal investigators said Tuesday.
Federal investigators said Asiana Flight 214’s landing gear hit a seawall before the tail of the plane during a weekend crash at SFO. The NTSB said it had also learned that the commanding pilot of the crashed jet was on his first trip as a flight instructor.
