An Asiana Air Boeing 777 crashed at San Francisco Airport on July 6, 2013. Three passengers were killed and many passengers and crew were injured. The Asiana pilots suggested that the autothrottle may have malfunctioned. The NTSB investigation concluded that the crash was due to flight crew mismanagement and fatigue, with contributions from the complexity of the autothrottle and autopilot flight director systems.
