|This was a serious close call .|
This week we just had the first major Airliner crash in years . It was a VARY LUCKY situation that almost **306 people nearly survived the crash . There were two causalities , it was reported that two Chinese girls . Who came on a vacation trip just to go to summer camp . In the United States may have lost their lives because of 'human error' when they were ejected from the Airliner ,somehow wound up on the run way. Being as reported , one of them was run over by a fire truck during the initial rescue . Now not much much for conspiracy theories . What was not reported just get better , but bits of info would soon be out . Still, the NTSB has released preliminary findings from the flight data and cockpit voice recorders to the media that indicate the plane was approaching SFO's runway well below the target landing speed of 137 knots (157 mph). Autopilot had been disengaged at 1,600 feet (488 meters).According to the NTSB, the pilots tried to gun the engines seven seconds before impact. Four seconds before impact, a stall warning sounded, meaning the airplane wasn't generating enough lift. At 1.5 seconds, the pilots tried to scrap the landing and go around for another attempt, but they didn't make it. The plane seems to have hit a seawall directly in front of the runway. It then skidded down the tarmac, depositing debris along the way. What was not reported (repeating) is that there were several eyewitnesses who saw the airline flying as it was approaching SFO Airport . One of the 'eyewitnesses' said that she saw the Airline hovering vary low . This eyewitness report was just 50 miles from the airport . As the news media reported that the Airline was traveling "significantly below" its intended speed and its crew tried to abort the landing just seconds before it hit the seawall in front of the runway, the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board said on Sunday. Information collected from the plane's cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder indicated that there were no signs of trouble until seven seconds before impact, when the crew tried to accelerate, NTSB Chairwoman Deborah Hersman said at a news conference at the airport. A stall warning sounded four seconds before impact, and the crew tried to abort the landing and initiate what's known as a "go around" maneuver just 1.5 seconds before crashing, Hersman said.-------- ##speculation . Parts of the Airliner had fallen , found in the Bay just before the initial crash. The way it was flying . It was just by a near miss that the Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 had not crashed into anyone's backyard .
