They are not ruling everything out.

Anything is on the table, according to the chairman of the national transportation safety board.

It was pretty clear that a big focus of the news conference and of the investigation is on the airplane policy approach, speed, that it was well below what was targeted for the 777's landing.

The speed went as low as 124 miles per hour.

Aviation safety experts said that it hit 1,000 feet short of the touchdowns on.

From comments earlier it did not indicate that mechanical failure was an issue.

At least not so far.

During the approach the data indicates that the throttle was at idle and air speed was slow below the target air speed.

The throttles are advance a few seconds prior to impact and the engines appeared to respond normally.

Now, i want to tell you a little bit about what we know of the pilots on the plane.

There were two operating the plane at one time, the length of the flight, lee joe , 46 years old, 10,000 hours in the cockpit.

This we were told by a ciena.

The ntsb is not ruling anything out at this time.
