NTSB Closes San Francisco Command Post

Posted: Updated:

The National Transportation Safety Board has closed its San Francisco command post, concluding the on-scene investigation into the crash-landing of Asiana Airlines Flight 214.
 
The NTSB said in a statement Monday that its investigative team has completed the examination of the airplane wreckage and runway at San Francisco International Airport.
 
The wreckage will still be available for further examination if necessary at a secure storage location at the airport.
 
Investigators completed several witness interviews over the weekend and were expected to finish interviewing first responders Monday.
 
The agency says the next phase of the investigation will include additional interviews, examination of the evacuation slides and other airplane components, and more in-depth analysis of the airplane's performance.
 
Flight 214 crashed July 6, killing three people and injuring dozens.

Meanwhile, a government official with knowledge of the situation says a summer intern who confirmed erroneous and racially offensive names for the pilots of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 is no longer an intern with the National Transportation Safety Board.
 
 The official wasn't authorized to comment about personnel matters and spoke Monday on condition of anonymity.
 
An anchor for KTVU-TV read the names on the air Friday before apologizing for the error after a break. The NTSB says the intern erroneously confirmed the names "outside the scope of his authority."
 
Asiana says the TV report "badly damaged" the reputation of the airline and its pilots, and plans to sue the station.
 
NTSB spokeswoman Kelly Nantel says the agency does not discuss specific personnel matters but has taken "appropriate action to deal with the situation." She says interns in the agency's office of public affairs are unpaid.  (AP)
