Investigators Scrutinizing Pilots of Asiana Airlines Flight That Crash Landed

Federal investigators are scrutinizing the actions -- and inactions -- of the pilots of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 during the final 34 seconds of the more than 10-hour flight that crashed while landing at San Francisco International Airport.
