Flight 214 Plane Crash At San Francisco Airport Caught On Amateur Video
Amateur video that surfaced exclusively on CNN earlier today shows Asiana Airlines Flight 214 approaching the runway and slamming into what seems to be a San Francisco seawall. The plane is seen violently cartwheeling counterclockwise before coming to a stop. Fred Hayes tells CNN he shot the video about a mile away from the crash site.
According to NTSB Chairwoman Deborah Hersman, the cockpit voice recorder of Flight 214 revealed the pilots called for a "go-around" 1.5 seconds before the plane made impact.
There is no discussion of any aircraft anomalies or concerns with the approach," National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Deborah Hersman told reporters Sunday, providing an update on Saturday's plane crash. She said a call from a crew member to increase speed was made approximately seven seconds before impact.
As of today, the death toll remained at two. 19 survivors remain hospitalized at San Francisco General, six in critical condition. Investigators continue to examine all information as flight data records are now in the hands of NTSB.
Witnesses and passengers both felt that the plane was flying too low before impact.
