Investigators looking into the crash of Asiana flight 214 in San Francisco are now focusing on pilot error.
NTSB Chairwoman Deborah Hersman says a preliminary analysis of flight recorders shows the plane was traveling too slowly to land safely.
They're getting valuable clues from the plane's data recorder and the crew own words, taped by the cockpit voice recorder seconds before impact.
A crew member tried to get the pilot to abort the landing but it was too late.
" A call from one of crew members to increase speed is made approximately seven seconds prior to impact,"
Hersman says. " A call to initiate a go around occurs 1.5 seconds prior to impact."
While Hersman says everything is still on the table in this investigation which could take months,
the President of Asiana Airlines said Sunday it does not appear that mechanical failure caused the crash of flight 214.
NTSB investigators, who are leading the search for a cause, say all aspects of the flight, everything from crew sleep schedules to weather and airport construction will be examined.
Eight passengers remain in critical condition, with everything from head trauma to fractured spines. Many of the survivors have burns and traumatic injuries from the seatbelts and slamming into other seats.
The two passengers who died have been identified as 16 year old girls. Both are Korean students on a school field trip.
