-- or the airport he approached.
In place in the cockpit.
They are now reviewing.
They're working to conduct.
Hour work -- histories and has 72 hour histories are really looking at.
The pilots flight duty time their rest opportunities.
And the activities they had taken place in the days leading up -- crash.
In our investigations were often looking.
For things that might affect human performance like.
-- Like illness is or medication.
Like health issues and so.
We will be looking at all of those things to see if there any impacts on their ability to perform their jobs.
We are working to interview.
All foreign pilots.
That were on the aircraft.
Coming -- to San Francisco.
There were two pilots and many of you all have talked about mr.
It was a captain.
Who was working on his initial operating experience in the triple seven.
He wasn't experienced pilot and it -- it prior captain.
But he was working on getting his rating on the triple seven -- getting its initial operating experience in the triple seven.
Also flying but the Czech captain.
Or training captain.
And then there were two other crew members.
Another captain and first officer.
Who were also flying again remember -- that very long -- -- trans Pacific flight.
And say that create four crew members are there for relief.
So that the others can get rest.
When we -- view those four crew members we're gonna get a lot more details about their activities.
About their work about their training about.
Who was the pilot.
Who is the pilot in command.
In the cockpit at the time of the accident.
We're going to be what -- -- looking to correlate all of that information with what we are finding.
On the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder.
It was important for us to wait until the arrival of are Korean counter parts.
At -- at the K wrapped and also PG on -- when we conduct interviews.
We utilized the party process we -- group interviews.
We've got pilots who also might need translation services during his interviews we want to make sure that this interviews are effective.
And that they're comprehensive.
I know you all have a lot of questions about the pilots and their training.
I will tell you that when -- brief tomorrow.
I hope to have a lot more information about the pilots just to head off some of those questions that I may not be able to answer today until those interviews are complete.
Team has looked back through communications.
Through voice communications.
And as a right.
Shared with -- yesterday we have no evidence of any distress calls or any problem reports.
With respect to.
The aircraft prior to the accident.
We will be reviewing data -- For prior flights.
Coming into San Francisco.
In the days and hours in the days prior to the accident.
Particularly on the accident -- -- to see if there were any issues associated with their recent runway construction.
Or they glide slope outage.
This crew -- in factored in for a seventeen.
Final visual approach.
They were factored in from the northern California tray -- which is located near Sacramento.
AG on the 214.
Reported that they had the air airport in sight.
They were cleared for -- visual approach.
And they transition.
To tower control.
They were cleared to land by the tower it.
There was the accident sequence and -- subsequent launch of the emergency responders on the airport property senate that we party talked about yesterday.
I have seen and heard some reports about up 4000.
What 4000 foot per minute descent rate.
They have reviewed the radar data.
And a group that reviewed the initial hire FAA radar.
Data and have indicated.
That there's no.
Steep descent -- That's been detected in the data that they have.
Our power plants team.
Has conducted an on scene examination.
There's preliminary evaluations indicate that both of the engines were producing power.
At the time of impact.
And this is consistent with information that we also see on the flight data recorder.
There was no evidence.
Of an -- and containment.
-- number two engine.
Adjacent to the fuselage.
And there's evidence of high rotation -- impact.
The number one engine was found liberated from the aircraft.
-- exhibit severe rotational damage there.
We also took.
Fuels are we took fuel samples from the aircraft for testing.
-- flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder groups are beginning to convene in -- ten.
Create groups who will listen to the flight rate data recorder.
And help transcribed we want to have people on that cockpit voice recorder group are familiar.
With the aircraft.
And any noises or sounds or alerts that might might come from that aircraft.
We also want to make sure that we have.
Korean speakers on that group is well there's that mix of English.
Ann Curry and heard on the cockpit voice recorder.
Those teams will begin their work looking at that to our cockpit voice recorder and transcribing.
-- sections that they believe are most relevant to our accident investigation.
The flight data recorder group will be validating.
On the recorder.
As I mentioned yesterday this is a recorder that has.
Data on it.
And there are fourteen -- 14100.
Different parameters that are measured by the recorder.
We want to make sure that we understand.
Those parameters what they represent.
And make sure that the information.
That's on the air at the -- on there is is accurate and it's good.
There is another recorder on board the aircraft quick -- quick -- access recorder.
-- QA RMA record different parameters.
And so we'll also be taking a look at that as well.
We have a vehicle performance group.
And their work is really to focus on the performance.
Of the aircrafts.
Had -- aircraft moved -- operated -- -- responded.
If it performed in a way.
That was predictable.
And consistent with.
The manufactures guidance and expectations.
They have been examining.
The air for the accident scene as well as the aircraft.
There are ground -- witness marks.
And a significant amount of evidence.
Out on airport property.
There also evaluating and reviewing videos that have been made available to us by the airport and by others.
The performance group will use physical evidence.
Recorded -- -- and an aerodynamic models.
I would -- listening in to the chair from the NTSB talk about how their investigation will unfold.
