Our top story this morning
We've been waiting for almost a year to find out what went wrong and who was to blame for the crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 2-1-4 at San Francisco International Airport well now we know..
The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board on Tuesday concluded that pilot misjudgment and an over-reliance on automated systems they didn't really understand were the main causes of last July's crash.
It says the Boeing 7-7-7 came in too low and too slow in its landing approach as the trainee pilot, who lacked sufficient training, inadvertently shut off an automatic speed control system that might have prevented the accident.
The plane hit a seawall, ripping off the tail and sending the fuselage skidding down the runway.
The crash, on July sixth last year, killed three people.
One-hundred-87 were injured, 49 seriously.
