Asiana Airlines Plane Crash Update: Plane was Flying too Slow
The documents are a part of the report submitted by Asiana Airlines to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). In the report, the airline has acknowledged that the slow speed of plane was probably a cause of accident, and the irregularities in the Boeing 777-200ER’s autothrottle contributed to some extent. The plane’s navigation equipment was showing the autothrottle to be upholding the set speed, when in fact the equipment had disabled the minimum airspeed protection function of the aircraft.
Boeing has maintained in their report submitted to the NTSB that all the components and functions of the aircraft were working properly and did not contribute to the crash.
The incident happened when the flight was en route from Taipei to San Francisco. Three lives were lost while 200 were injured.
