After the crash of Asiana Flight 214 over the weekend at San Francisco International Airport killed two and injured 168, the independent Aviation Safety Network culled flight data to create this map, comparing the crash to other recent descents into SFO. With information still coming in, and questions lingering, the map doesn't provide you with all the whys and hows of the disaster, but it's a look into what was different that day.
The data is a little confusing--the blue line appears to run lower--but look at the annotated numbers and you get a sense of the height for each day. Which leads to the big, noticeable difference: the crashed plane descended faster than previous flights, landing well short of the runway.
Happy (crash) endings. From the country that brought you everything, but worse. Corporate profit for the win?
It's obvious someone was texting while flying.....or completely incompetent.
It was apparently a student pilot in control. There were apparently a total of four pilots aboard the plane. So "incompetent" in the sense that he was a novice.
The reason the blue line looks shorter is because that flight path is to the other runway, which is nearer the viewer.
Aren't pilots trained to frequently scan critical instruments on landing,particularly airspeed indicators? It seems incredible they let the plane drop below stall speed.

TTT: I maintain that the pilots were not focusing on the job at hand. How else can you explain that the co-pilot, with 10,000 hours on the 777 didn't see what the 'trainee' was doing wrong? He had to be preoccupied with texting, viewing porn, flirting with the stewardesses, etc. It's boggles the mind that a qualified pilot could be so careless with the lives of over 200 people by not taking direct action if he saw, and he must have if paying attention, that the plane was going too slow and too low. I am almost sure it's going to boil down to an inattentive co-pilot and lousy trainee who quite obviously flunked his tests!

What we know and don't know about Asiana Flight 214
my buddy's sister-in-law makes $70 every hour on the laptop. She has been out of a job for 9 months but last month her paycheck was $16749 just working on the laptop for a few hours...... www.bay95.com
just as Linda explained I am shocked that a mom can profit $6614 in a few weeks on the computer. did you look at this page.... www.bay95.com
"The data is a little confusing--the blue line appears to run lower"
My guess is the blue line was the aborted landing with the go-around because it appears to just stop at 300 feet.
"The reason the blue line looks shorter is because that flight path is to the other runway, which is nearer the viewer."
Perhaps, but then in the inset photo in the upper right corner (bird's eye view) I don't see a blue line parallel to the others.
