Asiana Airlines Flight 214: Timeline Of Plane Crash At SFO Airport

Posted: Updated:

As new details emerge about the Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 flight that crashed Saturday at San Francisco Airport, The Huffington Post is piecing together a timeline of how the incident unfolded.

All times are noted in Pacific Daylight Time.

On Sunday afternoon National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Debra Hersman said at a press conference that the pilots had made a "go around request," meaning they requested to abort the landing, just 1.5 seconds before impact.

Hersman also said the plane was flying below target airspeed before it crashed, and that a crew member made a call to increase speed 7 seconds before impact.
