New pictures show the remnants of the charred fuselage, debris, pieces of the tail section and the landing gear littering the runway.
About 50 seconds out, the first officer comments about the sink rate–that’s the speed of the descent.
Just nine seconds before impact, the pilot has concerns about the aircraft’s speed.
We now know that there were two calls for a ‘go around’ before the crash.
Then, the 911 calls from frantic passengers.
“We’ve been down on the ground, I don’t know, 20 minutes, a half-hour. There are people waiting on the tarmac with critical injuries, head injuries. We’re almost losing a woman here. We’re trying to keep her alive.”
Over 180 hurt and two dead.
Vigils were held in California and South Korea, in memory of the two teen girls who died.
Police now admit one of the girls was run over by an emergency vehicle, but it’s unclear if that’s what killed her.
Meanwhile, it was an emotional homecoming for the flight attendants.
There were 12 flight attendants on board, but seven were hurt, leaving just five to help evacuate 300 people.
Back at SFO, crews dismantled what’s left of the Boeing 777 and removed it from the runway.
A small fire sparked during the move–no word on how that happened.
So much for lucky 7s, right?
