Asiana pilot says he was blinded by light prior to crashFederal crash investigators revealed Wednesday that the pilot flying Asiana Airlines flight 214 told them that he was temporarily blinded by a bright light when 500 feet above the ground. Deborah Hersman, chairwoman of the National Transportation Safety Board, said it wasn't clear what could have caused the problem. Asked specifically whether it could have been a laser pointed from the ground, Hersman said she couldn't say what caused it. (www.usatoday.com) More...

Actually, that bright light was the stall warning lamp illuminating to tell them they just screwed the pooch.
I guess that light blinded him from seeing the airspeed indicator too. On a visual approach if you can't see the runway what should you do?
Pray hard and/or go around.LOL
Didn't go around. Prayers unanswered. They won't be California Dreamin anytime soon.
You never know about the dreamin part... They could have been Dreamin all the way down... and now they are Dreamin that they are going to get off from their major goof up.
Cover that butt, 4 days after the crash and initial NTSB testimony. Good Job!!!!!!!!!!
