After landing, the Boeing began to brake sharply (a black trace from the nose landing gear is visible) and it was carried outside the runway. The fire did not start immediately, so the passengers were able to evacuate quickly enough. Of the more than 300 people on board, there were many injured, forty of them in serious condition, two dead - Chinese citizens.

        Chinese citizens accounted for almost half of the passengers on the flight - 141 people. On board were also 77 representatives of South Korea, 61 American, Canadians, Indians, one Japanese, one Vietnamese and one Frenchman.

    Any accident is a systemic superposition of factors, both technical and human.
    Even the boasted Boeing 777 crashes.

      Given that, unlike our home-grown equipment, everything is done by Software and automation (people are nominally present).
      From photograph No. 3 it is clearly seen that the landing fell on the edge of the water and the shore.
      Hence the conclusion that the glide path is clearly underestimated.
      And for what reasons, these are already questions.

        Yes, + but with PMU and even more so during the day, even the "rotting adversaries" try to go in ... "on hand"!

        The glide path cannot be underestimated. it is a constant value (or rather, the slope angle of the glide path, if we speak in a specific language wink ), but it’s possible to go below the glide path (but the landing RP go the landing dispatcher immediately and it starts to “bliss”).
        Most likely they went at a reduced speed and took off speed at leveling and immediately .. "flop" ..... this is my opinion, and so the commission will tell.

        But this is a typical mistake for civilian pilots or having poor experience flying on a particular type soldier

    Hello everyone! Whatever you say, but the car is reliable, there could have been much more victims. A little off topic, but where on the topic of an unsuccessful test of missile defense missiles by Americans? or I missed this topic request

    That so few casualties is a miracle! Perhaps the dead will still be (God forbid, of course). Still, a lot of people are still in critical condition. But anyway - a miracle. What is it: an accident? did the aircraft design play a role? How could people evacuate so quickly and evacuate the wounded from such a carcass? Did rescue services work well? There are aviators - enlighten.

          On the contrary, he was able to take off, but the landing was not very ...

    But in general, somehow it was amazingly burning, and interestingly did he go out or did the firemen help? In any case, it is success and skill, in the first case of aircraft builders, in the second rescuers ...

      According to the latest information, the plane was led by a pilot trainee.

      pilot Lee Kang Guk, who sat in the captain’s seat during the ill-fated flight 214, flew on the Boeing 777 for only 43 hours. Moreover, he first landed a plane at the San Francisco airport,

      But, it says there
      Lee Kan Guk’s total flying time is about 10 thousand hours, including on the Boeing 747 - even larger and heavier than the "three sevens".

    There, since June, on the 28L lane, the course-glide path system was disabled for prevention. But the beacons of the drives should have worked anyway. Not on the same GPS came. And the dispatcher should have noticed that it was not on the glide path.
