July 8 (Bloomberg) -- The Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 that crashed while landing in San Francisco had slowed to almost 40 miles an hour below its target speed before hitting a seawall short of the runway, a U.S. investigator said.

Ntsb and they can -- investigators have not found any mechanical issues prior to landing.

They are hoping for more answers after their interviews with crew members.

All were experienced.

One pilot had 12,000 hours.

It was his first landing in san francisco area.

When we interview them, we are going to get more information about their activity, their work, their training, and who was the pilot training and in command area.

We are going to be looking to correlate all of that information with what we are finding of the cockpit voice recorder and data recorder.

The recorders showed normal operations until the final moments of the flight with the crew realized there were, get too slow and try to abort the landing.

How slope are they going?

They should've been fined at 137 knots.

They were down to 134 knots and then 112 knots.

Within 10 miles visibility and little wind, veteran pilots said it should've been easy to lend.

How could they get the plain below a normal glidepath and let it slow up to the point it was literally stalling and just to fall out of the sky?

Why do some of the pilots not to notice sooner?

Some the questions investigators are trying to answer.

Back to you.

Will have more of the plane
