Pilot in Training !
Asiana Airlines said the pilot was in training for the long-range plane and it was his first flight to the airport with the jet.
"It was Lee Kang-kook's maiden flight to the airport with the jet... He was in training. Even a veteran gets training [for a new jet]," a spokeswoman said in Seoul on Monday.
A stall warning sounded four seconds before impact, and the crew tried to abort the landing and initiate what's known as a "go around" manoeuvre just 1.5 seconds before crashing, Hersman said.
"Air speed was significantly below the target airspeed," she said.
