New footage of Asiana Airlines Flight 214’s crash landing shows the horrific accident that killed three and injured dozens.
The footage comes as the National Transportation Safety Board began its investigative hearing into the landing Wednesday. The July 6 flight crashed at San Francisco International Airport, killing three teenage girls and injuring about 200 passengers and crew, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Wednesday’s 12-hour hearing was not to assign blame for the incident, but rather to learn about the crash and ensure "the circumstances are not repeated," the head of the NTSB said at the opening.
Pilot Lee Kang Kuk told investigators he was "very concerned" about landing the plane without the runway’s instrument landing aids, which were out of service because of construction, the Associated Press reports.
Lee, 46, was a trainee captain in the Boeing 777, with less than 45 hours in the jet. He had not piloted a plane into the San Francisco airport since 2004.
