Asiana Airlines Boeing 777-200ER (HL7742) Body
NTSB provided new information about the plane crash on 6 July 2013 at San Francisco Airport. At first check, all Boeing 777-200ER (HL7742) aircraft systems worked properly, but it has not been determined if they have been set correctly. According to CVR (Cockpit Voice Recorder) recordings (none of the black boxes), none of the three pilots in the cockpit announced in advance the speed much lower than normal landing speed. With 9 seconds before impact, the first recordings that warned speed below 137 of knots appeared.
Inattention, ignorance, fatigue? It remains to be determined by the authorities. The investigation is ongoing, and the NTSB hopes to complete it in the 12 months, as a priority for the agency.
Runway 28L has already been cleaned up and will be returned to air traffic no later than Monday morning, not before the technical inspection. An FAA aircraft will test it beforehand to check if its infrastructure has been damaged.
The body will be cut and reassembled in a hangar. The operation has already begun.
The South Korean Ministry of Transportation has ordered an inspection of all the country's airlines, including Korean Air, Jeju Air, etc. The 48 777 aircraft in the fleets of South Korean airlines will be subject to technical checks. As an old Romanian proverb says: "Good security outweighs bad danger".
