The agency cited the complexity of the Boeing 777’s autothrottle and pilot training by the South Korea-based airline as contributing to the crash, which killed three passengers and injured more than 200.

The plane, with 307 people on board, was too low and too slow during the landing attempt. Its tail struck a seawall and was ripped off. The rest of plane went spinning and sliding down the runway. The crash was the only fatal passenger airline accident in the U.S. in the last five years.
