Pilots' Union Attacks NTSB for Releasing Early Information

Says the agency is rushing to judgment


A pilots' union issued a statement Tuesday criticizing the National Transportation Safety Board for the way the agency is releasing information about the crash at San Francisco International Airport Saturday.

Air Line Pilots Association International, which represents more than 50,000 pilots from 33 airlines in the U.S. and Canada, called the release of information about Asiana Flight 214 "ill-advised."

The statement said the NTSB reports about the investigation, crash and other details are "incomplete" and "out-of-context."
