The pilot of the crashed Asiana plane at San Francisco airport was still "in training" for the Boeing 777 when he attempted to land the aircraft under supervision on Saturday, the airline said.
Lee Kang-kook, the second most junior pilot of four on board the Asiana Airlines aircraft, had 43 hours' experience flying the long-range jet.
The plane's crew tried to abort the descent less than two seconds before it hit a seawall, bounced along the tarmac and burst into flames.
