With his inside is captain Chuck Nash a former navy pilot and -- captain we are looking at a debris field.
That he extends from.
Just short of the runway literally in the water.
All the way down the runway to where the plane.
Came to a -- does it look to you as though and we were targeted Jon Scott night in his analysis seems to make perfect sense.
They're given the damage that we're looking at right now the damage to the jedi itself just shy of the water.
This plane came in too low and landed too short.
That's exactly what it looks like break and I.
-- appreciate Gerry dear your previous guest.
Talking about did it will take some time to figure out what caused this extent.
Because we give tactic you're looking at right there is not -- almost -- accident.
What he's talking about is what caused the aircraft -- commander solo.
Or at such a high street -- -- not only did they -- to short of the -- that is the camera pans out you'll see arrows.
Yellow arrows -- -- on the block on the runway that's not actually the runway that those yellow arrows are indicating what's called a displaced threshold.
We cheating you don't believe that they are -- to -- -- further any arrows continue right up until you see.
Even up in the black and you'll see as the camera pans out you'll see an arrow pointing.
Toward the bottom of the -- And then the runway starts so what that says -- -- don't land anywhere in the air.
Usually end up here you don't land on the displaced threshold so he not only missed a runaway.
-- cleavage short of the displaced or shall.
What did you mean when you use the term high sink rate.
What can happen hitters if you.
Get a hit an eight normally when you're coming and -- BG a little bit of excess -- -- and then right toward the end you raise their nose and you what's called slayer.
And -- slayer.
-- -- -- -- -- And that's why he had that you know -- real nice touch down where every once in awhile the passengers will clapped because it's such sweet soft landing let's greasing it on.
If you just failed to break that rate of descent or.
You get to nose up too high eight increased 882 great of a rate of descent.
You can't break it and then you come on with the power to try to -- it and if you if you miss that.
And that rate of descent is too much to the power to break it.
You wind up you know coming down electrical -- And it appears that what happened was.
Beat the debris field is click here.
Egypt at the tail section -- -- got you the aircraft hit that.
Brick wall short of the displaced -- The airplane started coming apart without DM and I shall we are playing he doesn't have a -- so it's difficult to control.
-- lateral direction AG that on the run away because he doesn't have a router to to do that so -- to run -- egos.
-- into that this -- Offset from -- -- like.
You know we're getting a lot of reports from witnesses.
Who say they saw the plane.
On landing some describing in the landing.
As sort of a -- wheels.
That made any sense to you.
Yeah it does because it's if you if you hit with details purse.
That is going to take this run into the airplane and chips like him to the ground.
And when he does it's gonna drive the landing gear up into the wings were break off the landing gear and it looks like one of the landing -- It's about 500 speed up -- run away on the right side.
So when he came and clear from the debris field he was lined up right center line we'll have that short spin knows but -- -- struck.
The nose slammed down and at that point.
And her -- sources.
Working and if there was any already at all it touched down that's going to be accelerated and now they -- playing.
Will Kart -- on it and sometimes it can cart -- on the wing.
-- to -- and to a judge or something it could actually put the airplane over but it didn't do that fortunately.
Because that would have really been problematic for people getting out.
Captain Nash -- stick with us for just a moment its bottom of the hour right now want to bring our newest viewers.
Speed on what has happened here in Asiatic airlines flight from Seoul South Korea crashed while landing at San Francisco International Airport.
Forcing passengers to jump down on the emergency inflatable slides to safety it's not immediately known.
How many people were on word -- the nature and extent of any injuries we have no word on any fatalities.
Federal Aviation Administration is saying that this was a flight to fourteen.
And all they're saying is it crashed while landing on runway 28 left at 11:26.
Pacific time this morning.
We've shown you a video clip on YouTube it shows smoke billow -- From the jet we've also shown you this still photograph which appears to get -- People.
Having left the plane.
Before the fire -- So captain Nash that is.
That that the fire happened after.
Some people we don't know how many got out of the point.
And and that's one of the things that did.
-- secure your viewers should take away from this break which is.
-- all those times where you sit media and the emergency.
I'll -- and you got your ear buds and genetic you're listening to music or whatever.
The time to look at these instructions in the air so that when the flight attendant comes around and says are you ready -- do this you're really ready to do this because.
You never know what's going to happen.
The most dangerous part of the trip.
For these people who were in this crash believe it or not statistically.
Was the car ride to the airport to.
Commercial aviation is so safe and did it's did -- it so far in the minor decimal places did this is so rare occurrence but if that happens.
You gotta be ready.
In the last -- fatal US crash of continental express flight operated by.
Colgan Air which crashed into a house near buffalo that was in February of 2009.
-- your point is.
Is really well taken that crashed killing 49 people on board and one -- -- house.
That was the last major airline crash in the United States and again I was back in 2009.
So four years ago but.
You know this it's amazing when you look at the wreckage of this plane captain Nash that did anybody survived and it may be the case that everybody survive.
Well -- we're looking at the aftermath.
And Jon Scott -- excellent points when you -- him on here and that is.
When that thing happens these aircraft are tested.
-- for their the FAA will certify them and release them -- -- That design that aircraft just tested where they looked at saying whiz -- full capacity.
Blow the whistle and at that point everybody has to get out.
And I'm not familiar with the exact timing actually get -- -- ninety seconds it's something ridiculous we least think about pulling up to the the -- an airliner and -- you're sitting in the back how long it takes to get out sometimes especially when it's hot it can be an interminable wait.
But when the when -- -- when the balloon goes up and all those doors popped open.
It's amazing how quickly you can evacuate that aircraft.
I'm Kathleen Nash I have a question for you I've received a couple emails from our viewers because we've been talking about that the tail of this plane coming off.
And that's reminded several of our viewers about the American Airlines flight that came out of JFK.
That lost the tail.
And it landed in the rockaway day.
That was flight 587.
It crashed to the ground that killed all 265.
People on board that flight.
Apparently the result of the pie Atlanta overreacting.
At take off.
Because of some weight turbulence.
As a result of another air -- are -- Airbus 300 jets.
That caused to detail -- along with the rudder in the rear to break off completely.
And the plane to crash.
You know that was on takeoff did something similar happened at landing.
It's -- it but this is -- completely different products.
Because of the way he did -- Airbus and Boeing.
-- figure there -- control systems.
It's certainly different and -- It is a lot more.
I would just.
Sensitive it's its pilot to controls.
Whereas the Airbus is -- -- computer to control.
And so what happens is you wind up not at the Boeing doesn't -- -- succeed if it's -- the computer but.
The pilot has far more control and Steel City aircraft.
Dana -- an Airbus and what happened was when they took off and came out at JFK.
There was a -- -- -- -- and rudder -- -- That rudder -- Cause tremendous -- On -- -- Did detailed vertical stabilizers what it's called but it's -- detail the airplane sticking -- Cause tremendous stress on that.
Which induced do you all moment and the tail broke off and at that point the aircraft was -- -- And so that's that's when -- -- this you're coming -- you're not accelerating.
You're getting slower Chilean.
And when they do all the black boxes.
The black boxes will tell airspeed altitude ancient settings where -- the engines force pulling -- schooling down.
What -- -- -- -- it was and they will be able to tape actually.
What that it is simulator.
And you'll be able to sit there in that simulator and -- disprove the final moments of that approach.
So completely two totally different -- that we're talking about and two completely different situations one taking off and one landing.
Yes yes and in terms also kept Nash one other question about the fire itself said that broke out after that plane landed.
You can see it did appear to break out on one side of the plane.
Above the wean -- section area that would be where where some of the fuel was stored.
According to Jon Scott an -- and perhaps that's why.
-- Passengers were able to evacuate hopefully all of them safely at least according to the initial reports that we've receipts.
Well I'll tell -- -- -- what you're looking at right error looks absolutely horrible however.
That's master the people died -- and the fire burned and that's what's left of it notice that the wings are are pretty much intact.
So what you do what -- saw Blair -- an airplane they've -- -- Chips like and into the ground and created a fire get -- to fuel tanks on the wings.
Our ourselves ceiling.
And and they're built to change crash still -- impact is so it's not like -- days.
We're the Lockheed constellation comes again.
-- it's charity gasoline which is very very volatile jet fuel is not as volatile as gasoline by far.
So we this safety improvement speak to fuel tank integrity all of that design work that goes into the product like that it -- you certification.
It gets you to the kind of product they did we flying commercial aviation everyday at -- And and you can have confidence when you get on those airplanes dead -- the industry is very very standardized across the boards are there exceptions.
Yes things happen.
But for the most part.
It is -- -- -- of transportation -- the year despite what you're looking out on screen right there.
