controversy that is supposedly stirring regarding this pilot who was learning and training to fly this aircraft, he says the responsibility is really on the the head captain of the aircraft who is doing the training and said the pilot who, by the way, the name of the pilot is lee kang-kook, he says this pilot has been flying many other aircraft, and so obviously this is the next stage as you learn to fly the newer aircraft or the 777, which he was doing. if you speak to other experts in the aviation field and they say this is something that happens in this field. pilots will be trained to fly other aircraft, and they're still very experienced, so what we also learned, i have to point out, as well, is here at san francisco international airport, the ceo of the airlines says that before they fly out here, they go through a simulation, so they have an idea of what it's like to land an aircraft. still, something obviously went wrong in this case. >> all right, brandi hitt reporting in san francisco. thank you. >> we're going to have much more later this half hour. stay with abc for complete
