The investigation into Flight 214 – Rene Marsh reports

CNN is covering the latest on Asiana Airlines Flight 214, coming in for a landing at San Francisco International Airport Saturday when something went terribly wrong.

The plane slammed into the runway, killing two and injuring more than 180.

CNN has learned that the pilot in the captain’s seat had only 43 hours of experience flying the Boeing 777. This was his first landing in this plane at San Francisco International, though he had landed other jets at the airport before.

And the crew tried to abort the landing just seconds before the crash. But there may not have been enough time.

CNN’s Rene Marsh is reporting the latest.

Follow along on CNN.com for more on the investigation.
