WASHINGTON (AP) -- Five months after a deadly Boeing 777 crash landed at San Francisco International Airport, the National Safety Transportation Board plans a two-day hearing examining whether the pilots were overly reliant on computer systems when they approached too low and slow before striking a seawall and tumbling across the runway.
The board said the hearing will focus on "pilot awareness in a highly automated aircraft." There are also plans to review the emergency response.
The crash left three Chinese teenage girls dead; one died during the crash, a second was run over by a fire truck on the tarmac, and a third died at San Francisco General Hospital. In addition, more than 150 of the 307 aboard the flight were injured.
