Transcript for Inside the Terror and Survival of Asiana Flight 214
Now we turn to that other story of terror and survival, asiana and the crash landing in san francisco. Tonight the four pilots who were in the cockpit flying the plane have talked to investigators and david muir is in san francisco with the latest word. Once again, david. Reporter: Diane, good evening to you. We have learned from the ntsb after interviewing those pilots that not only was the pilot in training trying to land a 777 here in san francisco for the first time, the pilot who was training him was serving as an instructor for the first time. When that plane crash landed and the tail came off the back, two flight attendants were sucked out of the plane, ejected onto the runway. They survived it. We get a clearer view of what it's like to land a massive jet over the san francisco bay. Tonight as the pilot in training is questioned by the ntsb a rare view from inside the cockpit of what ilike to land over the bay at san francisco's afrpt. Seen in a video from youtube you can see through the cockpit window the ascend over the bay, much like the one we saw over the weekend when pilots are cleared for a visual approach. So many questions about flight 214. Inside the cockpit the pilot in training sitting in the left seat, the captain training him on the right. We know that the pilot being trained had logged just 43 hours on the 777. He had flown into san francisco before but this was his first time landing the 777 before. The pilot next to him had 3,022 hours flying a 777, 33 landings in san francisco. Investigators want to know what did the pilot with more experience advise the trainee to do and they are asking about the 72 hours leading up to the flight, did the enough sleep, what did they eat and drink, anything happen in their personal lives. Late today the ceo arriving in san francisco overwhelmed by the cameras, turning back, leaving the airport through a side entrance. Tonight more survivors from that crash landing going home. So many of their injuries mirroring one another, this man and his collar bone. My collar bone is injured. Wearing a neck brace, motioning side to side what she felt on the plane. This doctor saw so many of the same kind of injuries. Where the spienl kol lum gets compressed. Those injuries consistent with moves side to side, the arm rests jamming into passengers sides, breaking ribs, many passenger's spines stretched and compressed held down by lap belts. Late this afternoon we heard from members of a martial arts team on that flight back to san francisco. The engines revved into high gear like the captain was saying, oh, know we got to get out of here and then, boom, the back end lifted up, really jolted everybody in their seats. Reporter: That boom, that jolt, causing many similar injuries. We've also learned from the ntsb that the jet actually had a 360 degree spin before landing in the distance across the bay. The debris field 2,000 feet long and the chair woman of the ntsb telling me today that a piece of the wing was found in the bay before the runway even started. All of those pilots are cooperating with the ntsb. Incredible detail still unfolding. Thank you, david muir once again for bringings the latest.
