Two flights, same airport, two different outcomes

Last edited Wed Jan 23, 2019, 08:09 AM - Edit history (1)

San Francisco has parallel runways, and the two aircraft landed on different ones. The big difference is when the Asiana airplane made their approach, the airport was undergoing renovations and the electronic guidance system (ILS) was out of service, meaning the crew had to make a manual landing (Visual approach). In addition a visual aid, called Visual Approach Slope Indicator (VASI) was also out of service. The pilots blew it.

2. That was a real broadcast, the network took the bait hook, line and sinker

which goes to show how easy it is to slip fake news on them.

They came back on the air several minutes later and apologized after somebody figured it out.

On the serious side, one of the victims, a child, died on the runway after falling out of the plane. Covered in foam, a rescue fire engine rolled over her.
