U.S. NTSB releases surveillance video showing Asiana Airlines flight crash

"The crash on July 6 killed three people and injured more than 180, and was the first fatal commercial airplane crash in the United States since February 2009. The co-pilot, who was training the pilot flying the plane, thought the autothrottle on the Boeing 777 jet might not have been operating, the documents showed.

The pilot flying the plane said he wasn't sure whether autothrottle, used to set engine thrust power, was maintaining speed, according to the documents.

The low, slow landing caused the plane's tail to hit a seawall short of the runway. The plane spun 330 degrees as it broke apart and caught fire, strewing wreckage along the runway."

"Documents released on Wednesday showed the "wake up" issue had been raised before, including during certification of Boeing's latest jet, the 787 Dreamliner, which has a similar autothrottle system and was certified in 2011.

In an interview following the Asiana accident, Eugene Arnold, a test pilot for the Federal Aviation Administration, said he raised concern that the Boeing autothrottle would not "wake up" while in two of its modes.

Arnold noticed this while flying a Boeing 787 Dreamliner during its test phase. The 787, a next-generation jet that was introduced in 2011, had a similar autothrottle to the 777.

According to NTSB documents, Arnold "felt that even though the system had been certified previously and had met the requirements of FARs (Federal Aviation Regulations), it was a less-than-desirable feature and it could be improved upon." "
