Interesting analysis from The Aviationist

"The playback feature of Flightradar24.com for AAR214 shows the standard route for 28L. Still, by comparing the type of approach flown on the day of the incident and the one flown for instance on Jul. 4 (again with FR24 playback), you’ll notice that on Jul. 6, the final approach started a bit higher. This is not a big deal, unless the crew set a steep approach that, for one reason or another one, did not properly correct until the aircraft was a few feet above the water."

Undo what Wilson did

Conspiracy Theories must be getting to me

I think I've been reading about too many conspiracy theories, because one of my first responses past "oh my gosh" and "I hope nobody got hurt" was "I wonder who was on board and if somebody was wanting to take them out."

I have to remind myself: "No, Zac. Not everything is a conspiracy. Sometimes accidents just happen."

Pilot Undershot The Runway 48 Left and 48 Right

CBS local news says airline landed too short of runway on the tail.. Airliner was flying too slow and too low.. Fatigue may have been a factor...No wind and clear skies.

Top of jet is all burned up and one wheel missing..

NTSB from DC on the way to SFO. Some local NTSB on the scene already..

Most of critically injured taken to S.F. General Hospital

You mean 28L & 28R

And technically it's just one runway airplanes land on, in this case it was 28L I understand.

Fun fact... the runway numbers indicate the heading (i.e. 280 degrees or almost directly west). Thus the opposite end of the runway is always 180 degrees, 10L/28R & 10R/28L for SFO.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

I Thought They Said 48L & 48R

Stand correct if I heard differently..

Thanks for the clarification TheLorax
