A former pilot has created an animation that depicts exactly what happened on Saturday when Asiana Airlines flight 214 crashed at San Francisco International Airport, killing two and wounding 180 others.

Jack Suchocki, who, according to the Chron, flew 727s and other aircraft, now runs a company, Eyewitness Animations, which specializes in re-creating air crashes using computer animation for investigation and litigation purposes. He decided the Asiana crash was unique enough that recreating it through animation could, at the very least, help future pilots know what not to do.

The ghost plane in the video shows how the plane should have landed, giving viewers a better understanding of how low the jetliner was flying right before it crashed.

Actual communications from the plane and emergency radio broadcasts accompanies the video. Watch:

But the airlines will most likely sue saying it is not an accurate re creation of the accident.  This airlines is not about safety but saving face in lieu of all the crashes they have experienced.  And using pilots not capable of knowing what was going on prior to the crash.

Praiseworthy and  good explanatory VDOs . Will go a long way to help prosecutors to make the judiciary understand and appreciate the data that will become available in due course. And nail the pilots and the Airline beyond  reasonable doubt as required under criminal law.

Pulling up at the last second made the tail go down.  Just like the Titanic captain's last move, that made the ship turn toward the iceberg.
