Just in case anyone missed, which I doubt. A passengers airplane crash landed and was on fire in San Francisco yesterday Saturday July 6th 2013. 300 passengers, so far 2 died but probably due to rescuing vehicle hitting them, about 200 injured, others are just minor scratches and bruise, 49 are serious could be fatal will update soon from news.
I don’t recall a passengers plane crashed and killed here in the USA, but probably other countries. Chinese pilots perhaps people jumped into conclusion, however it’s true that the pilot was inexperience, have never landed a plane this big. Wait!? so this plane was not capable landing by itself? what the fudge? that’s not what I heard, for such a big airplane has a ton of high-tech gadgets and automatic pilot. In this case, I would assume: for take off, just maneuver the plane to the run way manually, then line up on the line, then press the take off button and it will take off itself? – this should have happened. Then for landing, line up again based on GPS precise calculation for landing, then press landing, then just watch the plane land, that is all to it. This big plane can take off and land by itself shouldn’t be any issue auto piloting.
Based on various videos showing, and also from flight recorder black box, the plane was coming in too slow and too low, the pilot got a call asking for increase of speed, but it was to late, the pilot realized he’s not going to make it so he full throttle abandon landing but as the nose goes up the tail hit the ground and BOOOM flipped and crashed landed, there was another plane nearby watch in horror, I bet they will get a piece of the news.
Based on what I have read and see, I can say that the problem as the pilot, the pilot was at fault. Took the landing to himself instead of having the computer do it.
One of the video captured the crash landing of Asiana airline uploaded to youtube had 4 millions hits, however there wasn’t any advertisement on the video, so just hits traffic, they’re not making any money look like it, too late now if you they decided to make money when it’s well over 4 millions hits went viral. Some other videos same result.
