Asiana Airlines said the pilot flying the plane that crashed in San Francisco International Airport on Saturday, July 6 had no experiencing landing a Boeing 777 at that airport.

According to reports, it was not the first time that pilot Lee Kang-gook flew from Seoul to San Francisco, and he had also a record of 43 hours flying a Boeing 777. However, at least two teenagers were killed and 182 were injured after the Asiana Flight 214 crashed atSan Francisco International Airport.

In the preliminary assessment by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) of the plane’s flight data recorder, the fatal accident occurred in just a few seconds. Investigations are still ongoing and making any conclusions at this point is discouraged since all the data in the plane is still being confirmed, Deborah Hersman said.
