We are getting our first look inside -- and a flight to fourteen after -- crashed on landing at San Francisco International Airport the National Transportation Safety Board.
Now on the scene releasing these pictures to the public.
You can see the charred interior of the plane the seats crushed together.
And they oxygen masks dangling from the ceiling good morning everyone I'm Gregg Jarrett in for Bill Hemmer here America's -- And I'm -- and brown in for Martha MacCallum we are learning new details about the pilot who had flown just 43 hours on a Boeing 777.
When he attempted to land this aircraft the NTSB now says the plane was traveling too slow and too low before it hit the sea wall in front of the runway.
The tail section breaking off the plane as it skidded across the runway.
Take a look in the aftermath.
Caught on this amateur videotape just moments after the impact you can see the emergency chutes deployed -- and passengers running for their lives.
The plane and becomes engulf in smoke as firefighters try to put out the flames.
Michael -- -- retired military helicopter pilot and he joins us now live Michael this.
Particular pilot was still in training we understand it and this was his first landing.
At San Francisco International Airport -- that kind of play in the Boeing triple seven.
So is that essentially where this thing is heading.
I think what we need to understand -- and I think I'd like to make absolutely clear is that the handling pilot -- wall's relative inexperience.
We do you know from the young from the relevant agencies that you had -- 43 rows on talk on the -- seven.
But what we must note is that he walls and the -- rule captain in charge of the airplane that was an instructor captain.
The dotted with 3000 out -- the trouble seven was a very experienced captain within the airline Arnold taught.
What was happening effectively in this this is this happens through outs.
Or the airlines in order to maintain the experience levels in the -- -- Is that this relatively junior pilot would have been given the opportunity to make an approach.
In order to increase -- experience notes increases capability.
I'm not one of the should have been done in the right measured way with the instructor captain overlooking him all time.
Well the NTSB -- saying Michael that they were too low too slow.
Asked to try again.
Why wouldn't the instructor captain instructor pilot have said hate.
Look at -- -- here you're too slow and it wasn't just slow by a few miles per hour it was really slow to sufficient for a stall.
Well let's let's look at actually what we know the NTSB board told -- from days of from the young the -- -- recorder and the flight -- from Korda.
We know the seven seconds that was a voice in the culprit -- offs -- increased speed.
We note full seconds ago that was the stick -- which is effectively a little device that does that shakes the stick.
Which means that the act croft is only an incipient -- which could lead to a catastrophic loss of -- And another one point five seconds ago that was a boy accidentally culprit does that go around which are effectively as an order to apply full power.
And take the -- crawl out of danger fly around in the circuit and come back to make another approach.
So we do know two votes those actions would given the question is should they have been given -- yeah.
Well I think what I mean the answer is obviously yes right.
Moments in terms in terms of the outcome absolutely but what we need to understand through the NTSB is.
How this position how we -- to this -- we'll have a crew came to this position.
Given that for most of the approach.
The information we house or faults else's that it seemed to be fairly stable the hopefuls what idol on the part of -- making steady approach but.
What I would say about SFO and particularly too -- left.
Is that the approach is big fairly complicated approach from the crew would have been fatigued also that would have been coming to the end of a fourteen -- And in this relatively inexperienced pilot is given a VFR approach to make.
Now what this means is is visual flight.
Visual flight rules so apparently visual flight rules mean that says puppets of great in 3000 feet and visibility and access -- fought miles.
But months on pundits make IFR approaches I'm I'm -- by -- -- to have good Samuels who makes the systems and fully automated systems.
So when there's an option to make -- veer far approach it's it's usually without the fully -- systems on the airplane so.
The the crew will have been finally saw it the approach is a complex -- because the the threshold is protruding out into the -- And in the handling the in that the captain instructor who's -- launching the situation.
Wouldn't have good visual references in the Roy -- -- we know that the weather wasn't particularly good that day I'm not one of let's to a glossy surface on the C.
When you have a glossy surface on the -- it's very hard to pick up -- -- the sense rate of closures and and -- -- so.
I think information is telling us is that the it to the approach was quite complicates -- -- Thank you very much Michael good to see appreciate.
