That report and for more on the ongoing investigation -- -- bring in former NTSB managing director Peter goals and aviation expert.
Mike Boyd it's it's you mr.
gold's first let's talk about that mr.
Lee blog only 43 hours and -- -- Claudia -- just said.
One of his practice flights was that flight that -- 214 into San Francisco.
Are -- US standards and by the way do foreign airlines international airlines have to.
Abide by our standards as well.
-- they have to meet a broad set of international standards but that he had only 43 hours in this type of plane.
It's not -- and of itself a problem the question is you have to pilots in the cockpit.
You have a senior pilot who's sitting in the left ANC who was participating in the landing what's he doing.
Doing -- -- last twenty seconds and why isn't he.
Doing his part to make sure that this landing is successful.
They voice recorder is going to tell the tale and I think it's going to be a pretty sad one.
Yet it's the bush record -- they recover those but they're also going to be all for pilots -- for pilots apparently two crews of two so -- it kind of combat any sort of sleepiness drowsiness that may have -- on.
Let me ask you Mike Boyd if you do and will will the result of this crash -- eventually change.
Some of the FAA rules requiring I don't know maybe more pilots are more hours -- before they attempt a landing like this.
It may mean I think -- right -- -- -- professional from the cockpit at this point in time including a check pilot.
You know who won't they let the airplane get away from them very obviously so.
Not necessarily but every one of these events always results and there is some good that comes out of -- we learn something so it doesn't happen again but.
I think overall this with more routine I think what we had is simply a human failure in the cockpit.
-- -- fairly the way we understand it according to Deborah hers -- the NTSB's chairwoman she said around seven seconds before impact the crew realizes that they didn't have enough air speed around four seconds.
The stick shaker starts to vibrate in the second and a half before they try to -- -- abort.
-- it shouldn't.
Should the stick shaker have been going off before four seconds before impact.
Now the stick shaker you know is is one of the essential tools and it gives the pilots a very short warning.
That they were in very deep trouble that -- about to stall.
But the real problem of of this flight as Mike indicate -- started earlier what would they do you know -- he will listen to it.
There -- checklists that go through their approach plans to review.
They should review the no cams that are out the notice to airmen that says the glide slope is off.
We will find out I think.
That these pilots did not do a very -- approach at this as Mike said they got behind the plane more and by the sergeant distinction they -- shows off its -- -- I -- talk to stay wouldn't signals here for a second to -- scope shows how it it's a -- units -- radio -- that shows you what that's right what how the approach should take place not read it.
I'm a pilot but I've read that we if you don't have that beam in your coming in over water your approach -- over water sometimes it can be optical illusions.
Is this a recipe for disaster and can we learn going forward from from this crash.
It sure it it makes it somewhat more challenging there -- other.
Equipment that the pilots can use hundreds of pilots obviously -- landed.
I'm runway four without the glide slope as it's being repaired.
That in and of itself.
I don't think is a problem right.
Mike what about the pilot now let's talk about after the impact.
Some are saying that the pilot continue to fly the plane may be have cat may be kept the plane from flipping over converting which -- -- probably possibly caused.
A lot more fatalities -- you care to comment on that.
I have no idea I just saw the the tape of the airplane hit the ground or hit the runway.
But by the time that got back in the -- again it looked like flying wreckage not an airplane took.
I don't know what happened were just they were just very fortunate that.
Only two people die that's all I can say yes sir -- mr.
goes what what about -- there's been some.
Indication that there was some Korean being spoken in the cockpit.
Just before the crash during the crash can you comment on what are the requirements for four flights landing on US soil.
What of the language requirements for those well well the international rules are.
Anything below once you're below 101003.
You have what they call a sterile cockpit that means no extraneous discussions.
And the pilots each one of them had to be proficient in English that's the international language.
Two fly an airplane.
Okay and and Mike to talk to us a little bit about.
I've read also that they displayed may have come in very high -- -- -- it started to high.
Came into it too much -- a steep slope hitting it I guess the wrong angle for landing at New -- about that.
Well I don't know Deborah Hirsch we kind of pooh -- that and we won't know until later but it gets into the same point of who was flying the airplane and how they were flying it.
I I think it's real clear with the safety record at this airplane.
Is the -- over 11100 of them delivered to airlines and there is only six that are completely out of service after eighteen years now an airplane issue.
It's a pilot issue aren't very good and leave it there by the way those four policy again will be apparently were interviewed today.
And we'll be continue to interview tomorrow and -- director Peter goals Mike -- thank you very much.
