    Well, it's understandable. Does anyone believe the story of flight 800 was the truth?

    Here comes the NTSB briefing......
    Yes, I think that is what happened.

    Asiana says pilot of crashed plane was in training

    Pilot had barely ever flown this type of plane before.

    He was flying too low and too slow.

    Co-pilot never corrected for this error until seconds before impact.

    I am NEVER flying on this airline. This airline should be BANNED from American airspace!!!!!

    Supposedly, in the Asian culture, the captain flies and is not questioned. Very scary. Also, they probably didn't have much experience flying without a glide slope. They are taught to look at their controls, not outside.

    How do you know this? Which credible source does that information come from?

    Didn't make any sense to me either.

    Apparently the pilot at the control may only have had 43 hours in that aircraft type, and had never landed one. It hard to believe they'd use a real flight as training for landing. I don't know, seeing all kind of numbers flying around, even about the missing.

    I heard this morning that one of the two deceased was struck by an emergency vehicle responding to the crash.
