    Asiana Crash Discussion

    Here's one airline pilot's perspective on the accident as well as his commentary on the media coverage:

    Asiana Airlines Flight 214: A Pilotís Perspective

    SFOís runways were not to blame; Korean pilots are not poorly trained; and itís never OK to grab your carry-on before an emergency exit.

    By Patrick Smith

    Ignore what you're hearing about San Francisco's airport and Korea's air safety culture.

    On Saturday afternoon an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 crash-landed at San Francisco International Airport, killing at least two passengers and injuring dozens more, many of them seriously.
